The primary focus of my research is the development of novel perfusion imaging approaches to better understand cerebrovascular pathology. Specifically, I am interested in investigating the relation of hemodynamic factors such as cerebral blood flow (CBF) and cerebral blood volume (CBV) as well as metabolic demands or oxygen metabolism (CMRO2) to neural activity in degenerative diseases.
My areas of interest are:
-Arterial spin labeling MRI and development of novel imaging paradigms related to cerebral perfusion
-Degenerative diseases especially, Alzheimer’s Disease.
-Application of machine learning approaches to imaging data in order to improve disease characterization
