Technical Papers

As a graduate student in applied physics, I conducted research on the physics of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). I published a paper, made some conference presentations, and wrote my master’s thesis on the topic of fat-water “separation” (or really identification) in MRI.

As an undergraduate, I conducted some basic research in the field of quantum mechanics and worked in a lab building circuits for a laser cooling system that would be used to study Bose-Einstein condensation and other interesting phenomena in clouds of strontium atoms cooled down almost to absolute zero.

Below is a list of my papers and presentations.
