General Research Interest

Primary interest is in developing novel imaging techniques for MRI. Active research focuses on developing MR Elastography (MRE) and Diffusion Tensor Imaging of the heart. Research components include pulse sequence design, faster image acquisition strategies and image analysis/processing. The lab is supported by NIH, AHA,SIR and Third Frontier Grants.
