Career Update

March 25, 2019

Some career news – I’ve graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Madison, and am now a post-doc at the Driehuys Lab in the Center for In Vivo Microscopy and Department of Radiology at Duke University in Durham, NC.

Not to worry! I’ll still be working on applications of hyperpolarized gas MRI to lung disease.

MRI of the Lung, 2nd edition

August 7, 2018

Good news, everybody! The 2nd edition of the Springer textbook “MRI of the Lung” is now in print, and I’m somehow first author on the chapter on asthma.
