Professor of Clinical Imaging Sciences at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry.

Imaging sciences are all about illumination: shedding light on discoveries that ultimately translate to a more precise level of diagnosis and patient care. Professional experience has included training, research and teaching at top medical universities, including Yale, Harvard, and Hadassah Hospital at Hebrew University in Jerusalem.

Published in many leading peer-reviewed medical journals, and has collaborated in a number of clinical trials. Current research includes exploring new techniques in contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography (MRA). Past recipient of the American Medical Association's Physician's Recognition Award, which honors physicians who have shown their commitment to patient care through continuing medical education.

Medical degree from Yale University School of Medicine. Completed a Residency in Diagnostic Radiology at the University of Rochester Medical Center, as well as a Fellowship in Neuroradiology at Brigham and Women's Hospital of Harvard University.
Certified by the American Board of Radiology and holds a certificate of added qualification in Neuroradiology.

Member of the American Society of Spine Radiology, the Eastern Neuroradiological Society, the American Society of Neuroradiology, and the American College of Radiology, the Radiological Society of North America, and the Rochester Roentgen Ray Society. Undergraduate degree in Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering from Princeton University.
