Academic interests

I am postdoc at the Multimodal Imaging Group of the Norwegian Centre for Mental Disorders Research (NORMENT), Oslo University Hospital/University of Oslo.

I have a broad theoretical and experimental experience in an area of neuroimaging and magnetic resonance. On the one hand, I was working on multiple theoretical and computational aspects of solid/liquid state nuclear magnetic resonance. On the other hand, I am actively involved in computational and clinical studies, in particular, a big data analysis and development of a new instrumentation for ultra-high field magnetic resonance (MR). As a result, it allows me to use deep analogies from the different MR physics and computer science areas and successfully apply them to my ongoing projects.

Magnetic resonance imaging has become a critical and integrated part of modern medicine and diagnostics, with an increasing importance of technological developments and application of advanced neuroimaging techniques. My main research focus is an application of modern MRI modalities such as diffusion/perfusion weighted imaging, magnetic resonance spectroscopy to our running clinical studies. I try to utilise various advanced MRI approaches in order to improve a sensitivity and specificity of the big data analysis for clinical and cognitive studies, for example, such as schizophrenia and bipolar spectrum disorders or understanding of neuroplasticity mechanisms and attention and memory functions.
