Currently, my research is in the area of medical imaging. Specifically, I’m studying how fMRI acquisition methods affect data reconstruction in post-processing. Interleaved acquisition is the practice of skipping slices (such as every-other slice, or every 6th slice) during acquisition to prevent cross-slice excitation from corrupting the image. In order to reconstruct the image in a meaningful way, this interleave information must be known. Through image processing techniques, we’ve developed a method to recover the interleave value using only the raw, unprocessed fMRI data.Other areas of interest are medical imaging, neuro-aging, and biomedical devices.
