Research Interests

  • Cardiovascular MRI and MR Angiography: methodolgy development and translational research in data acquisition, image reconstruction, and post-processing
  • Velocity-sensitive MRI: 2D and 4D Flow MRI to facilitate non-invasive hemodynamic assessment of the vascular system and CSF flow
  • Rapid MRI: sequence design, reconstruction algorithms, and realtime imaging
  • Motion detection and correction schemes for the measurement of or the compensation of physiological and involuntary motion in MR imaging
  • More details on my research group can be found on the Cardiovascular MRI group page.
