Teaching and areas of guidance

Supervisor for 26 PhD and Master Students since 1995. At present supervisor of one Post Doc, involved in measurement of the blood brain barrier permeability in MS patients and one PhD student involved in methodological development of MR methods capable of measuring cerebral perfusion and oxygen consumption. Co-supervisor for 4 PhD students.  

Main research areas

Collaboration with professor I Awad, The University of Chicago Medicine, USA; Associated professor I Galea, University of Southampton, UK; and Dr. S Maier, University of Freiburg, GE.  

Main research areas

Functional and physiological MR imaging in order to obtain physiological and patophysiological information in diseases as: Multiple Sclerosis, Neurodegenerative diseases (Alzheimer's dementia), small and large vessel brain diseases, ageing and brain tumors.


Magnetic Resonance physics related to MR imaging and spectroscopy;

Mathematical modeling especially related to tracer kinetic theory;

Brain physiology related to oxygen metabolism, lactate production, perfusion, capillary transit time, blood brain barrier permeability;

Functional brain activation using BOLD imaging;

Non-linear BOLD response.Quantitative myocardial perfusion imaging;
