Research interests

My main research currently focuses on quantitative preclinical imaging using microPET/CT and microPET/MRI mostly in oncology and neurology. Moreover, I am interested in standardization of preclinical imaging procedures and protocols and I also perform pharmacokinetic modeling of obtained PET data.

Techniques, methods & infrastructure

microPET; microPET/CT; microPET/MR
