My research focuses on the development of novel techniques to improve data quantification in simultaneous PET/MR imaging systems applied to neuroimaging.  With the advent of considerable technological advances, combined PET and MRI scanners have been developed that allow for the simultaneous collection of both PET and MRI signals from a single point in space. My work focuses on optimizing the PET data reconstruction workflow to allow the BrainPET system to be used by a more general scientific audience, allowing it to be applied to a diverse range of studies. Additionally it exploits the simultaneously collected MRI to enhance the PET image quality and information content.
