Christopher Roy is a postdoctoral fellow at the CVMR. He graduated with an honors in physics BSc degree from Mount Allison University, in Canada, in 2010. He completed his MSc in 2012 and PhD in 2017, both in Medical Biophysics at the University of Toronto. Working with Drs. Chris Macgowan and Mike Seed at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Chris’ graduate research focused on accelerated imaging and motion correction strategies for MRI of the fetal heart. This work lead to the first retrospectively gated fetal CINE bSSFP images and first application of compressed sensing to dynamic fetal imaging.
Christopher has a strong interest in using post-processing methods to address practical challenges in clinical applications. At the CVMR Chris will focus on the acquisition and retrospective reconstruction of multi-dimensional cardiac imaging data in an effort to resolve respiratory and cardiac motion without the need for external navigation or breath-holding. Outside of work, Chris enjoys playing music, hockey, and spending time with his family.
