Scientific summary

Research interests include the development of more robust image-based assessments and integration of multi-parametric information (chiefly with ultrasound) for specific and sensitive evaluation of cancer status and its therapeutic response. Signatures of my research are to strive to achieve system-independent measurements from localized regions so that parameter maps can be compared more effectively over time.

Received the CNRS Bronze Medal in 2004 for original research demonstrating that high-resolution, localized measurements of intrinsic tissue acoustic properties could be used to map atherosclerotic plaque composition. Fundamental studies of “post-excitation” acoustic emissions from ultrasound contrast agent microbubbles recognized with an award for best published paper in the IEEE Transactions on Ultrasonic Ferroelectrics and Frequency Control in 2006.  Co-author of work receiving the Best Paper award in 2015 at the IEEE UFFC International Ultrasonics Symposium. I have given 13 invited presentations at international conferences and participated in international collaborations (PICS CNRS, Fulbright, NIH).
