I am a biomedical engineer working at the interface of neuroimaging technology, signal processing and neuroscience. One line of my current research is to harness the cortical-depth-dependent information uncovered by high-resolution fMRI to improve the neuronal specificity and sensitivity of BOLD fMRI measures; and to exploit the depth-dependent patterns of resting-state brain functional architecture. A second line of my research, supported by the NIH K99/R00 Pathway to Independence Award, focuses on integrating state-of-the-art fast PET technology and fMRI to probe the neuronal, vascular, energetic and neuromodulatory mechanisms underlying brain functional dynamics.
