Research My Research

My research focus is on Traumatic Brain Injury with the ultimate goal of improving injury detection, patient outcome and treatment development. I lead a multidisciplinary translational research team including physicists, neuropsychologists, clinical collaborators from the Departments of Emergency Medicine, Neurology, and Rehabilitation Medicine as well as computer scientists from the NYU Tandon School of Engineering. I serve as Primary Investigator (PI) on multiple NIH-funded projects including a R01 studying brain iron and a R21 using computational techniques to stratify patients.

I investigate how to apply the latest MRI technology to brain injury in two main areas: 1) understanding cellular-level tissue microstructure using intravoxel modeling of diffusion and transverse relaxation and 2) unveiling the metabolic mechanisms of disease using proton spectroscopy, sodium MRI and blood oxygen level dependent (BOLD) fMRI. Finally, I apply advanced machine learning methods to study multimodal MRI for patient classification and outcome prediction.

I am committed to developing collaborative imaging science across disciplines here at NYU. I lead the imaging component on two Neurology Department projects: 1) a highly publicized NIH U01 project studying Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy in retired NFL players and 2) a study examining subconcussive impacts in athletes, funded by the New York State Department of Health (NYS-DOH). I am a founding member of the NYU Concussion Center Steering Committee and serve as co-chair of the Research Subcommittee. I work with the Department of Psychiatry investigating biomarkers that differentiate Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury.
