I am interested in the development of novel imaging approaches and analysis strategies to better understand psychiatric and neurological brain disorders. My work in image acquisition focuses on diffusion tensor imaging and chemical shift imaging. I am also working on methods to automate the analysis of brain morphology and incorporating these tools into diffusion tensor and chemical shift imaging.

“I like to describe Iowa City as a small town, with a big city feel. The town is great to live in for a graduate student: cost of living is low, it is a very safe city, and a ton of activities. Iowa City is perfectly located within driving distance to several bigger cities: Des Moines (2 hours), Chicago (3.5 hours), Madison (3 hours), and Minneapolis (5 hours). Whether it's the summer jazz festival, film festivals, live bands, or the farmer's market, there are cultural events year-round that give you the chance to get out and have some fun. ”
