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.
