Member Bio:

I am a biomedical engineer working in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with RF/microwave and mechatronics background. I am specifically interested in studying three primary topics: (1) hardware development for MR engineering applications, (2) multi-physics theoretical and computational modeling of MRI and other biomedical processes, and (3) hardware-/ and RF development for cellular and molecular imaging modalities.
