Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy is a non-invasive technique that allows the study of chemical composition and structure.   Since the technique is non-selective, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy methodologies have been widely applied.  In vitro nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy has been used to obtain a metabolic profile of body fluids and tissues, and in vivo the technique has been used to determine metabolic change in disease. 

My research involves using nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy techniques to improve diagnosis and treatment monitoring of liver disease.
