bridging the micro-macro gap with diffusion MRI
I am a faculty at the Department of Radiology, Center for Biomedical Imaging, New York University School of Medicine, where I spearhead the MRI Biophysics group, together with Dr. Dmitry Novikov. I graduated Magna Cum Laude in Engineering in Physics from Ghent University in 2003, where I subsequently received my PhD in 2008 on Validation Methods for Diffusion Weighted Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Brain White Matter. I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Biomedical Imaging, New York University School of Medicine during 2008-2011. Currently, my research focuses on early biomarkers for neurodegenerative diseases, novel contrasts from time-dependent diffusion MRI, and numerical simulations and design of MRI phantoms.
