Research summary

My research aims to develop non-invasive methods to image brain physiology with MRI. The focus of my current work is to develop quantitative fMRI methods for measurement of the brain’s oxygen consumption as an indicator of tissue function. The ability to assess brain tissue function non-invasively should provide a valuable tool in the study of disease and during drug development.
