Hadrien Dyvorne (Alumni)

HadrienHadrien Dyvorne is a Research Associate in the High Field group directed by Dr. Balchandani. His research focuses on developing efficient ways to generate uniform radio frequency pulses, in order to provide reliable contrast and good image quality for high resolution 7T imaging, and to improve challenging applications such as diffusion tensor imaging. He is a specialist in pulse sequence development and image reconstruction. Initially trained with a PhD in low field NMR (CEA Saclay, France), he completed his postdoctoral research on accelerated MRI techniques for cardiac and body imaging at New York University, then at Mount Sinai.
