My research is centred on developments and applications of magnetic resonance imaging. Of particular interest is the design of radio-frequency probes to generate the required excitation fields and to pick up the signals. At high frequencies the short wavelength causes problems with image homogeneity. By careful design and using new multiple transmit methods these problems can be overcome. I am also researching the use of high temperature superconductive probes in MRI. Another area of interest is that of safety of magnetic fields and their interaction with the human body. Working in and around very high magnetic fields can cause dizziness, a metallic taste in the mouth and flashing lights in the eyes. Understanding the interaction mechanisms fully should lead to appropriate safety legislation related to magnetic fields.
