Borjan Gagoski, PhD
Borjan Gagoski received his PhD degree in February 2011 from the Magnetic Resonance Imaging Lab led by Prof. Elfar Adalsteinsson at the EECS department at MIT. His early research included the implementation of fast encoding schemes for spectroscopic imaging on Siemens MR platforms. During the last several years of his PhD, he was involved in the development of RF pulse designs using parallel RF transmission at 7T MRI systems, for the purpose of improved spectral-spatial mitigation used in chemical shift imaging (CSI) applications.
After spending one year as a postdoctoral associate in the same lab at MIT, he joined Dr. Grant's lab in January 2012. As an MR physicist, his main research interests remain focused on the improvement of both the excitation and readout parts of a MR experiment, mainly concentrated on the software end (custom acquisition schemes, sequence and reconstruction development, etc). The premise of his work at CHB is to apply the newest MR technical developments in clinical settings.
Borjan comes from Skopje, Republic of Macedonia. He is married, and he likes to spend his free time playing tennis, hiking and skiing with his family and friends.
