Research interests

I am interested in developing non-invasive neuroimaging techniques for the identification of possible disease biomarkers. My research primarily consists on the assessment of cerebrovascular dynamics using functional MRI (fMRI), integrating multiple and complementary physiological parameters such as cerebral perfusion and cerebrovascular reactivity.
