Developing magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy techniques for in vivo characterization of diseases. Current research topics include identification of biomarkers for mild traumatic brain injury, post traumatic stress disorder, and chronic pain using advanced spectroscopic methods, imaging strain in the carotid arteries and myocardial wall, and breast spectroscopy.
