Jianmin Yuan graduated in Physics from Fudan University, China in 2013. He worked in Shanghai Key laboratory of Magnetic Resonance from 2012 to 2013, where he did research on MR phase image reconstruction from multi-channel acquisitions. The results of this study could help to improve the accuracy of Susceptibility Weighted Imaging (SWI) and Quantitative Susceptibility Mapping (QSM).
From 2013 to present, he is a PhD student in Department of Radiology, University of Cambridge, supervised by Prof Jonathan Gillard and Dr Martin Graves. His PhD research interests involve fast and accurate quantitative MR vascular imaging including T1, T2 and T2* measurements and also the analysis of the vessel wall perfusion. The first work includes the development of advanced blood suppression techniques, dedicated k-space acquisition designs, and use of compressed sensing to reduce the scan times. The second work looks into the application of a 4D contrast-enhance MR sequence to simultaneously obtain MRA and perfusion of the carotid artery. He is also interested in the biomechanical modelling of carotid atherosclerosis plaque.
