We focus particularly on stroke, cardiac arrest and traumatic brain injury. Predicting a patient's response to different treatment strategies prior to therapeutic intervention can aid clinical decision-making and thereby improve patient outcome. My group's research concentrates on the development of machine-learning algorithms which combine multiple MRI modalities and clinical data to assess tissue injury and recovery and ultimately patient outcomes. In addition to algorithm development, my group's research involves the refinement of advanced MRI data acquisition and analysis and development and validation of quantitative imaging biomarkers.
