About me

  • My research interest lies in the quantitative evaluation of pathological
    states of the brain using MRI. Among my specific goals is the understanding
    of the white matter changes in the elderly, as well as the understanding of
    the natural course of neurodegenerative diseases such as dementia. As a
    physician, I am particularly interested in the incorporation of validated
    MRI biomarkers to clinical practice for the purpose of diagnosis dementia as
    early as possible.
