WMSG student representative candidates
You have two nominees to choose from. Brief biographies are provided below. The election is over.
Ives Levesque is a PhD candidate with Prof Bruce Pike at McGill University in Montreal. His current work is focused on quantitative magnetization transfer imaging with application to multiple sclerosis, in tissue modeling and data acquisition. He has been a member of the WMSG since attending the 2003 WMSG workshop in Venice, and he also attended the workshop in Vancouver. He has presented his work at both of these meetings, as well as at ISMRM meetings.
I completed my MSc in Physics under the supervision of Dr Alex MacKay and Dr Qing-San Xiang at the University of British Columbia in the area of metal artifact reduction. I am currently a PhD student at the UBC MRI Research Centre in Vancouver; my thesis topic is the implementation and development of multi-echo T2 relaxation at 3.0T as well as the comparison of T2 relaxation and diffusion metrics in MS brain. I like piña coladas, don’t like getting caught in the rain, am afraid of ducks, chickens, turkeys… fowl in general. If elected, I promise to market MRI as a holistic therapy to realign haphazardly oriented spins for the prevention of dry skin.
