Major Areas of Research Interest: 
My main academic focus is head and neck oncology and advanced imaging techniques, including positron emission tomography/magnetic resonance imaging (PET/MR), resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (rs-fMRI), high resolution MRI, diffusion-basis spectrum (DBSI), and molecular imaging with F18-DOPA for the evaluation of brain gliomas.
