I am an Assistant Professor of Radiology in MRI and PET/MR physics at the University of Wisconsin, Department of Radiology. I received a Ph.D. in Medical Physics from the University of Wisconsin, and worked in Clinical Neurosciences as a postdoctoral MRI physicist at the University of Oxford in the UK. My work is focused on PET/MR neuroimaging.

In my free time I enjoy music, both playing and attending shows, travel, and working on electronics and software projects. I am an avid motorcyclist, and ride a 2013 Honda NC700X. I have a strong interest in general aviation, and hold an FAA Private Pilot - Airplane Single Engine Land (ASEL) airman's certificate. I am also a PADI certified advanced open water diver and rescue diver.
