Cancer Focus

My research group develops novel signal and image processing and imaging methods. One of the goals of my research group is to develop quantitative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques. Over the past decade, our focus has been on accelerating MRI through novel pulse sequences and image reconstruction techniques.
