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.
