Karin is interested in developing Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) techniques for clinical applications. Her current research focuses on understanding and exploiting MRI frequency contrast. Conventional MRI uses only the signal magnitude, but utilising the frequency has dramatically improved visualisation of tissue structure and can reveal tissue composition. During her previous post at the USA National Institutes of Health, Karin developed new methods to calculate tissue magnetic susceptibility maps from MRI frequency images – an exciting technique and a rapidly growing research area. She now aims to unlock the potential of MRI frequency methods to generate clinical MRI biomarkers of disease.
