Why I got involved with research

Interest in gaining experience in a lab environment and getting hands on experience with developing tools and software.

Research Project

Nanoparticle Classification with Magnetic Particle Imaging

I will be characterizing the nonlinear dynamic magnetization response of magnetic nanoparticles developed as tracers for Magnetic Particle Imaging using a custom built magnetic particle relaxometer (MPR). This will involve data acquisition and analysis for particles synthesized in the lab. Then I will study and modify the code that controls the MPR and analyzes the data to streamline the analysis process.
