Following my Ph.D. that focused on cardiac MRI (coronary), I worked at the Applied Science Laboratory, GE Healthcare as a Senior Scientist for almost 7 years until 2010 when I moved to Stanford and SRI International, where I developed novel techniques for dynamic contrast enhanced imaging, ultra-high field (7T) imaging, pediatric imaging as well as for imaging deep brain structures.
