Areas of Research

Disease processes, Medical imaging
My research focus is MRI and near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) of animal disease models as well as translational research. My group studies problems related to hypoxia and drug responses, in disorders such as multiple sclerosis, stroke, cancer, epilepsy, and high altitude exposure. We develop NIRS and MRI imaging methods for quantifying hypoxia in brain and muscle, studying physiology and biomechanics of cartilage, looking at cerebral blood volume imaging methods, and undertaking multimodality studies using near-infrared and MRI. pubmed search:
