Matt started his MR journey as a Ph.D. student at UCLA under the tutelage of Dr. Ennis. There his research focused on the implementation of new pulse sequence techniques for 2D Phase Contrast MRI for faster and more accurate imaging. Following his PhD, he spent four years working at GE Healthcare as a scientist on the neuro applications and workflow team. Through collaboration with Stanford Psychology at the Center for Neurobiological Imaging, the team developed and commercialized a faster EPI imaging technique through the use of simultaneous multi-slice (HyperBand). Matt returns to Stanford as a research scientist looking to apply his experience as an MRI pulse sequence programmer, on both the Siemens and GE platforms, to bring the professional aspects of industry into the academic world of research.
