Biography

I am a Research Assitant in LIRP and QIML, Radiology, University of Wisconsin-Madison

I am co-advised by Professor Scott Reeder and Professor Diego Hernando.

My research interests are in developing and assessing advanced R2* relaxometry and susceptibility based quantitative MRI in the body, mainly focused on liver and placenta.
