Principal Investigator
Fardad Michael Serry, MS
Research Associate II

Fardad Michael Serry received master’s degrees in physics, electrical engineering and computer science, and magnetic resonance in medicine, respectively, from the University of New Mexico, the University of Illinois and Cedars-Sinai. His research involves main magnetic field (B0) correction (shimming) hardware, software, theory, and computational simulations including near metal implants, and signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and reconstruction of MRI images.

Yujie Shan
Research Associate I

Yujie Shan is a Research Associate at the Biomedical Imaging Research Institute (BIRI) at Cedars-Sinai. He got his master's degree in mechanical engineering with advanced manufacturing track at the University of Southern California in 2019 and then joined BIRI in October 2019. His research interests mainly focus on novel MRI hardware and methodologies for in vivo and material applications and additive manufacturing technology. In particular, he has pioneered the mechanical design of MRI cardiac and body scanners using novel MRI scanning technology known as iPRES (integrated Parallel Reception, Excitation and Shimming).

Yuheng Huang
