My research covers various aspects of imaging and therapy with ultrasound phased-array systems. The overall goal of my work is to develop an image-guided ultrasound phased-array system for noninvasive surgery. Under this umbrella, my students and I have worked on a number of novel approaches involving realtime 3-D imaging, noninvasive temperature imaging, and self-focusing array systems in the presence of strongly scattering objects.
