Interests

My research uses magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques to look at blood brain barrier (BBB) breakdown in patients with cerebral small vessel disease (SVD). These MRI techniques allow us to quantify and map BBB leakage in individual patients, which can then be correlated with damage seen in specific brain regions and clinical measures of disease severity.
