Position

Postdoc

Research Interests

I am interested in using MRI to identify changes in tissue micro-structure occurring in health and disease. Here at the DRCMR I am working on the UHeal project, in which I aim to characterize the nerve degeneration associated with "hidden hearing loss" using MRI.
