Stephen Ogier, PhD is a postdoctoral research associate in the NIST Magnetic Imaging Group. He is an electrical engineer by training whose primary focus is building things to expand the capabilities of MRI. During his PhD studies at Texas A&M, this meant developing systems to allow one to perform MRI more easily and sensitively with a wide variety of elements. During a postdoc at King’s College London, Dr. Ogier pivoted to working on systems for performing MRI safely at high fields and in subjects with implanted medical devices. At the present, he is very excited about exploring the possibilities presented by MRI at low and ultra-low magnetic fields.
