My primary research interest is in MRI measures of cerebral hemodynamics in children. Quantitative pediatric neuroimaging poses unique technical challenges as many of the physiological assumptions we generally accept in the adult population may not apply in younger subjects, especially in disease. Projects I have been involved in utilize BOLD-CVR imaging in combination with the RespirAct, CBF modeling and quantification from ASL measurements, and computation of oxygen metabolism in the brain.
