Researcher biography

My research interests lie in the field of human brain and cardiac MRI at ultra-high field (7 Tesla and above).

I am particularly interested in imaging techniques that provide us with an accurate look into the human’s brain with the ultimate goal of achieving a better understanding of the brain’s functional networks and degenerative diseases. My core responsibility is the development of novel image acquisition and reconstruction techniques that allow for a measurement of the brain’s function and tissue properties with high spatial and temporal resolution. 

With respect to cardiac imaging, I currently focus on building up the centre’s ultra-high field cardiac MRI research program. Exploiting the signal-to-noise benefits of our 7 Tesla magnet, I am developing and testing novel and fast imaging techniques that allow for an accurate evaluation of the heart’s function and help us characterizing the tissue of the myocardium.
