Dr. Bragi Sveinsson is an Instructor in Radiology at Harvard Medical School. He earned his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University, where his focus area was Magnetic Resonance Imaging, or MRI.

In his research, Dr. Sveinsson is mainly interested in imaging methods for the musculoskeletal and peripheral nervous systems, particularly related to conditions associated with aging. More specifically, he has worked in several technical frontiers in the field of MRI: (1) Quantitative imaging in the musculoskeletal system based on modeling of MRI physics. (2) Imaging close to metallic implants. (3) Predicting quantitative microstructural tissue parameters with machine learning. (4) Immersive visualization of MRI data. (5) MRI at low magnetic fields.
