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 love living in Iowa City! While it is a small town, there are plenty of cultural events going on all the time. Obviously, one of the most important aspects to me is the music scene. The music venues in Iowa City work hard to constantly bring in nationally-touring up-and-coming bands. The Blue Moose, Gabes, The Mill, and the Yacht Club have live music almost nightly, so you always have an opportunity to see a great show. The Bijou is an indie movie theater that shows awesome films for only $3. With the Writers' Workshop here, authors are frequently brought in to do readings and book talks, and the Iowa City Public Library is fantastic. The best thing about all of these is that they are cheap! Honestly, I am NEVER bored here! ”
