My work involves implementation of novel MRI methods and protocols for use on the 3.0 T Tim Trio by investigators at the Harvard Center for Brain Science. This includes ensuring the proper functioning of our MR system; assisting research groups in obtaining the best possible performance from the MR system and providing technical oversight of installation, operation, and upgrades of MRI equipment, sequences, and software. I interact with investigators at the Martinos Center and provide an essential conduit for new developments between our facilities and with Siemens. I am also pursuing research into non-Gaussian anisotropic diffusion effects, incorporating double-PGSE methods, with applications in neuroscience. In addition to the above, I am an occasional collaborator with the low-field imaging laboratory with a focus on posture-dependence of human lung function.
