Current Research

My interests are in the areas of Magnetic Resonanceand Physics at Low Temperatures. Currrent projects are Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the lungs using hyperpolarised He-3, solid state NMR at very low temperatures, Nanomechanical oscillators and lung mechanics. The MRI project is currently aimed at understanding lung development from childhood through adulthood with a study of the potential of the method to detect the early onset of lung disease. The behaviour of small mechanical oscillators is studied at very low temperaure. These can be made with dimensions of around thousandth of a millimeter and have great potential as sensors as well as allowing us to study quantum effects in macroscopic objects.
