About Me

I am an Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering here at the University of Virginia. My lab, Virginia Imaging Theory and Algorithms Laboratory (VITAL), investigates theoretical questions and exciting applications of image reconstruction. Current research topics focus on fast and motion-robust magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for cardiac and body-imaging applications, and enhancement and visualization of optical microscope images for neuroscience. I also have courtesy appointments in Biomedical Engineering and Radiology and Medical Imaging.

From 2012 until 2014, I was a post-doctoral research fellow at the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor, where I worked with Jeffrey Fessler and Douglas Noll. My research was supported by an NIH National Research Service Award (NRSA) post-doctoral research fellowship (F32EB015914). Previously, I received my Ph.D. and S.M. in Electrical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, in June 2012 and June 2008, respectively. There, I worked with my thesis advisor Vivek Goyal. Earlier, I received my B.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering with honors from Carnegie Mellon University in May 2006.

I am presently a member of IEEE and ISMRM. As a student, I was inducted as a member of both Tau Beta Pi and Eta Kappa Nu.

My curriculum vitae is available here.
