Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at Massachusetts General Hospital. As a doctoral student, she led the ground-up development of a portable MRI scanner for human brain imaging, and recently began the development of a Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI) animal scanner for functional brain imaging. She also worked on the development of educational NMR/MRI systems – including the classroom "tabletop" MRI systems currently used in 6.03 and several graduate-level classes at MIT. Dr. Cooley has a B.S., M.Eng, and Ph.D in Electrical Engineering from MIT. She was awarded the Young Investigator Award from the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine in 2014 for her work on low-cost portable MRI.
