    Executive Manager, Radiology - Diagnostic Radiology

    Current Role at Stanford I consider myself an innovation enabler and workflow optimization enthusiast. At Stanford 3D and Quantitative Imaging Lab, I work closely with healthcare providers, researchers, and educators to enable effective health visualization. Recent innovations are of particular interest to me; such as 3D Printing, immersive volumetric visualization, clinical implementation of validated AI algorithms, and the general concept of reporting concise changes over time.

    Senior Research Engineer, Rad/Radiological Sciences Laboratory

    Current Role at Stanford My current position is Senior Research Associate in the Radiological Sciences Laboratory and the Molecular Imaging Laboratory in the Department of Radiology at Stanford School of Medicine. I provide hardware, systems, and general technical support for a large group of Faculty members and many students and post docs in the development of advanced medical imaging, metabolic imaging and image-guided interventions. My training background is primarily in RF and electrical engineering and I have spent more than 25 years in the commercial diagnostic imaging industry. Most of the projects I am currently working on involve instrumentation for metabolic imaging using magnetic resonance of hyperpolarized carbon nuclei. I am also involved in the development of Hybrid systems that combine Positron Emission Tomography and Magnetic Resonance imaging. Other projects I am involved in use focused ultrasound for neuro-stimulation or drug delivery via blood brain barrier. I also provide RF coil design and support for small animal imaging and various research studies. I have ongoing collaborations with many other medical research institutes and Universities around the world. I currently have 40 issued US patents and 100 pear reviewed publications.
