  • Kawin Setsompop

    Kawin Setsompop

    Associate Professor of Radiology (Radiological Sciences Laboratory) and, by courtesy, of Electrical Engineering

    BioKawin Setsompop is an Associate Professor of Radiology and, by courtesy, of Electrical Engineering. His research focuses on the development of novel MRI acquisition methods, with the goal of creating imaging technologies that can be used to help better understand brain structure and function for applications in Healthcare and Health sciences. He received his Master’s degree in Engineering Science from Oxford University and his PhD in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT. For the last decade, prior to joining Stanford in 2020, he led a research group at Harvard/MIT that pioneered a number of widely used MRI acquisition technologies. A number of these technologies have been successfully translated into FDA-approved software products that are being used daily on MRI scanners across the world, in both the clinical and neuroscientific fields.
