My interests lie in improving Magnetic Resonance Imaging performance by developing methods to minimize image artifacts and improve scanning efficiency on high field imaging systems. My research areas include real time shimming, continuously moving table imaging, motion correction and field monitoring.


My current work involves developing methods for rapid whole-body imaging using continuously moving table MRI methods. My past work has included realtime head motion correction using NMR probes for high resolution neuroimaging, dynamic B0 shimming at high field and developing models for prospective shim eddy current compensation.
