Research Interests

My research interests involve structural imaging in brain cancer. I actively work in radiomics, a field of study dedicated to extracting quantitative imaging features from a medical image to produce a mineable database of radiological features with clinical relevance. Radiomic features are hypothesized to capture phenotypic differences within a tumor and have prognostic power. Through the combination of magnetic resonance imaging and ex vivo histology, cellular and genetic information regarding the patients tumor can be linked to macroscopic in vivo images.
