After graduating from a bachelor’s degree in physics in 2013 at the West University of Timisoara (Timisoara, Romania), I was attracted to the biomedical field due to its multidisciplinary feature. I pursued with a masters in bio-imaging at the University of Bordeaux (Bordeaux, France), where I had the opportunity to discover the world of academic research and to experiment more closely with MRI in the context of two research internships. I obtained my PhD from the Aix Marseille University (Marseille, France) in the early spring of 2022 with the work entitled “T1D-filtered inhomogeneous Magnetization Transfer (ihMT) imaging: Theoretical characterization, experimental validation, and application on myelin pathology”. My work in the Microstructure Mapping Lab as a post-doctoral researcher focuses on state-of-the-art diffusion methods aiming at the characterization of brain gray matter microstructure and the underlying changes induced by pathology. The framework of my research is preclinical imaging, an invaluable versatile research tool and a central piece in the big puzzle of translational studies.
