Research Currently in Progress
The overall goal of my research is developing and validating quantitative diffusion-weighted MRI techniques for the characterization of complex biological tissue in vivo, and integrating these techniques into computational models to address current and future medical challenges. I am particularly interested in investigating their feasibility in probing the underlying tissue characteristics in different disease conditions and organs, including adult and pediatric brain tumors, gastric cancer, and breast cancer. These advanced MRI techniques aim to facilitate important clinical decisions in cancer diagnosis, early prediction of response to therapy, and monitoring disease recurrence, helping to develop optimized patient management strategies.
