Dr Jaime Parra Raad
Postdoctoral Research Associate
I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate based at the Quantitative Ultrasound Imaging & Interventions lab (QUIIN lab) in the School of Biomedical Engineering & Imaging Sciences. My research focuses on developing super-Resolution ultrasound imaging techniques for imaging blood vessels to the micron level. Specifically, I work on developing strategies to map the 3D microcirculation structure of soft tissues by means of super-resolution ultrasound images. The objective of my research is to improve the detectability and characterisation of microvascular associated diseases.
I have a multidisciplinary engineering background covering anisotropic material characterisation, ultrasound and electromagnetism probe design, and optimisation of control strategies. I obtained my mechatronics engineering degree from Universidad Autónoma de Bucaramanga – UNAB and my master’s degree from Carnegie Mellon University. Then, I joined the Non-Destructive evaluation Group (Mechanical Engineering Department) of Imperial College London, where I obtained my PhD before joining King’s College London.
