Research Interests: 
  • Development of non-invasive monitoring techniques for evaluating biological flow (blood, serum and cerebrospinal fluid), and evaluating neonatal brain development. Specific interests in MR-based methods for evaluating blood flow (Phase-Contrast MRI), and for evaluating CSF flow (Arterial Spin Labeling Variants).
  • Cerebral Blood Flow Response to Hyperoxia and Hypoxia in Patients with Sickle Cell Disease.
  • Comparison of Impediance Cardiography and MRI methods for Cardiac Output Measurement.
  • Monitoring CSF via TimeSLIP MRI methods in patients with neurosurgical indications of abnormal flow.
