My research interests include developing new acquisition and reconstruction techniques for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Specifically, I focus on quantitative imaging and accelerated imaging, with applications in musculoskeletal (MSK) and brain MRI.
Obtaining an MRI is a slow process. It can be difficult for patients to lie still, especially young children. It can also be an uncomfortable and anxiety-producing experience for some patients. I look at ways to accelerate MRI acquisitions and efficiently encode data to collect multiple image contrasts very quickly. MRI contrast is relative, and I work on using quantitative imaging so that images are robust and repeatable. With these techniques, I’m interested in translatable research resulting in robust methods that can be applied in the clinic, directly improving the care and outcomes for patients.
I am a member of the International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and received the National Institutes of Health (NIH) F32 Ruth L. Kirschstein Postdoctoral Fellowship Award (2018-2020). I have been a researcher for nearly ten years, and I began my work at Cincinnati Children’s in 2020.
