Research topic: Research in the lab resides on the interface between the development of novel methodologies for non-invasive MRI, and their application for studying tissues’ structure and function in biology and medicine. Our main research-objective is to characterize the myeloarchitecture of the central nervous system, in order to gain more insight into the pathophysiology of multiple sclerosis and other demyelinating diseases. To achieve this we develop new MR-based techniques, spanning several aspects of this imaging modality:

  1. Sub voxel tissue models of the brain myeloarchitecture
  2. Investigation of myelodegenerative diseases (specifically Multiple Sclerosis)
  3. Quantitative encoding of MR parameters (qMRI)
  4. Design of new MRI protocols and image reconstruction algorithms
  5. Accelerated and multiparametric acquisition schemes

Research methods: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), Optimization algorithms for image reconstruction, Reconstruction of undersampled datasets (e.g. compressed sensing & super-resolution)
