My PhD focused on biophysical signal modelling of the BOLD fMRI signal. This was applied towards furthering our understanding of the magnetic susceptibility of blood, transverse relaxation from blood, and the vessel-size dependence of R2' quantification.

 
My research at the Martinos Center is focused on modelling the BOLD signal across multiple spatial scales - from the macro to microvasculature. Additionally, I will be investigating novel acquisition methods for increasing the spatial resolution of BOLD.
