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.
