Dr. Matt Rosen is a physicist with experience as a tool-builder for NMR and MRI, and his work bridges the spectrum from fundamental physics to applied bioimaging work. He established the Low-Field MRI and Hyperpolarized Media Laboratory at the Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging to focus on the continued development of new hyperpolarization methods and MRI-based tools. The Rosen Lab focuses on new methods and tools to enable unconventional approaches to MRI scanner construction. This includes the development of new acquisition strategies for robust ultra-low magnetic field implementations of MRI focused on brain imaging. We also explore opportunities provided by hyperpolarization including in vivo Overhauser DNP, SABRE, and spin-exchange optical pumping. We create new quantitative strategies for the acquisition and the reconstruction of highly-undersampled imaging data including neural network deep learning based approaches such as AUTOMAP that leverage low-cost scalable-compute.
