Research Interests

The theoretical and experimental development of new magnetic resonance imaging techniques to meet the research and clinical needs of the medical and biomedical community. Special interests include hyperpolarized noble-gases magnetic resonance imaging to study lung function and lung disease, optimization of the MR pulse sequence and lipid-liver MR imaging.
