Research Interests
My research focuses on fluorine-18 radiochemistry and development of novel PET tracers for preclinical and clinical applications.

  • New method development for fluorine-18 labeling
  • Novel PET tracer development for imaging of targets with clinical relevance
  • Translation and optimization of labeling methods for automated production
