Professional Summary:

The main focus of my research is to develop novel optical and ultrasonic imaging techniques to meet needs in cancer and neurological research. In my lab, students will have the opportunities to be trained in optical and ultrasonic engineering, be involved with preclinical and clinical imaging studies, and be collaborating with chemists, physicians and neurologists in Western New York and Ontario Canada.
