Assistant Professor, Bioengineering
Assistant Professor, Medicine



Professor Anthony G. Christodoulou’s research focus is on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) physics and image reconstruction, particularly quantitative imaging for cardiovascular and cancer applications. He and has group have authored publications in outlets including Nature Biomedical Engineering, Magnetic Resonance in Medicine, IEEE Signal Processing Magazine, and IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging. His work on 4D cardiovascular MR (CMR) received the best paper award at the 2011 IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Conference; his recent work on multidimensional quantitative cardiovascular imaging, dubbed MR Multitasking, received the 2016 Society for MR Angiography Best Oral Presentation Award, was a finalist for the 2017 Society for CMR (SCMR) Early Career Award, and received the 2018 SCMR Clinical Seed Grant Award. Prof. Christodoulou is a member of the IEEE, ISMRM, SCMR, and AHA.
