Personal profile

Research interests

Research Expertise:
Hyperpolarized Magnetic Resonance | Molecular Imaging | Nanotherapeutics

My research focuses on improving nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR) and imaging (MRI) through the development of hyperpolarization methodologies, which temporarily improve NMR & MRI signals by several orders of magnitude through enhanced nuclear spin alignment. My primary goal is to apply these techniques to biocompatible nanomaterials, which can be utilized for both targeted molecular imaging and novel therapeutics. Along with developing additional MR-based contrast agents, I am also interested in determining the effects from prolonged usage of electronic nicotine delivery systems.
