Research Interests

My research interest is to develop fast and reliable magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) methods that can provide improved diagnostic contrast and useful information. In particular, my group is currently focused on developing advanced quantitative MRI techniques for early diagnosis, treatment guidance, and therapeutic response assessment for oncologic and cardiac applications. We have developed several novel image reconstruction algorithms and software tools, which improve spatial- and temporal-resolution of MRI and easily facilitate quantitative MRI analysis. Such developments can offer more robust and reproducible measures of biologic markers associated with human cancers and cardiac disease.
