Profile Headshot


I am a faculty member in Radiology and Biomedical Engineering and Chief Medical Physicist in Department of Radiology at CUMC/NYP. My background and training have been in MR physics, machine learning and medical image feature analysis. As an image analysis scientist, I’m interested in developing noninvasive post processing and image analysis techniques for disease detection, and evaluation of disease therapy outcomes. My long-term research goals are to evaluate the use of multi- parametric MR feature analysis techniques and develop classification and regression machine learning models for disease and outcome prediction.
