Over the last 20+ years I have developed a strong expertise in MR imaging, with multidisciplinary skills ranging from fundamental physics to microsurgery in rodents. I position myself at the interface between Physics and Medicine, easily navigating between developing new methods for MRI and technology transfer to clinical and preclinical applications. Over the years, I have designed, implemented, and validated imaging protocols with very diverse magnetic fields ranging from 0.0065 T to 9.4 T. My area of expertise includes MR elastography in the liver and brain, thermometry, metabolic imaging, and low magnetic field MRI.

Together with Dr. Sarracanie, we co-founded the Center for Adaptable MRI Technology (AMT Center) in 2017 when we were assistant professors in Basel, and have recently (April 2023) relocated our entire low-field MRI platform in Aberdeen, at the Institute of Medical Sciences. Extensive refurbishment of the Biomedical Physics building is currently happening, where three of our fixed, low-field scanners along with 2 Field-Cycling whole-body systems will find their new home. This joint effort with me, Dr. Sarracanie, Dr. Broche, and Dr. Ross will contribute to the largest low-field MR technology platform ever built with about 900 m2 of lab and office space, at the heart of the Foresterhill campus.
