I am a physicist specializing in MRI in the Imaging and Spectroscopic Physics section of the Department of Medical Physics. I have expertise in imaging techniques such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), and dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE) perfusion MRI. The primary focus of my clinical work is in treatment planning for patients with brain cancer, using fMRI and DTI to enhance the safety of neurosurgical procedures.

In my research, I use fMRI and DTI to describe the function and structure of human motor and language systems, and to study how these systems are affected in patients with brain cancer. I also work with neuroradiologists to study how metastatic spinal bone marrow cancer responds to radiation and surgical therapy using DCE perfusion MRI.

Three times a year, my fMRI laboratory teaches a course for neuroradiologists called “Hands-on Clinical Functional MRI and Diffusion Tractography.” In addition, I give lectures on fMRI, during which I teach attendees the basic principles of fMRI data processing and analysis and how to solve problems in clinical fMRI data.

Doctors and faculty members often work with pharmaceutical, device, biotechnology, and life sciences companies, and other organizations outside of MSK, to find safe and effective cancer treatments, to improve patient care, and to educate the health care community.

MSK requires doctors and faculty members to report (“disclose”) the relationships and financial interests they have with external entities. As a commitment to transparency with our community, we make that information available to the public.
