About me:

I studied Biomedical Engineering at AGH University of Science and Technology, Cracow and became particularly interested in MRI and Neuroimaging during a research stay in Laboratorio de Procesado de Imagen (LPI), Valladolid, Spain (2017). Since May 2017 I am working in the field of microstructural imaging with a great focus on the project entitled "Single shell Q-space biomarkers in diffusion magnetic resonance imaging of the brain".

Research interests:

I am curious about how to obtain non-invasively microstructural details of the underlying brain tissue. This includes how far the limits of MRI scanner can be pushed, as well as how exactly the diffusion process goes in a complex brain structure. The features obtained via dMRI experiment are called diffusion biomarkers. In contrast to visual inspection assessment, the aforementioned features of the underlying tissue structure are quantifiable, which means that they could be practical indicators of tissue changes in case of diseases or brain remodelling.
