- My Research Interests are in biophysical modelling of neurovascular coupling mechanism, and statistical analyses of near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).
- Present Research focuses on understanding the mechanism of vascular regulation underlying fMRI-based brain connectivity. Using arterial spin labeled perfusion MRI and MR angiography, I am quantitatively assessing the spatio-temporal contribution of cerebrovascular fluctuation to fMRI signal and its association with regional vasculature.
- Previous Research has focused on the development of statistical analysis methods for NIRS (i) to improve the spatial specificity of neuronal activity, and (ii) to estimate the oxygen consumption and supply during brain activation.
