During the course of my doctoral studies my research topic was an ultrasound-based method of monitoring ultrasound therapy. Besides publications, the research spawned an international patent, and in 2014 a spin-off company, OxSonics, was founded to help commercialize (among others) this invention.

Although I still collaborate with my old laboratory, (BUBBL, Institute of Biomedical Engineering, University of Oxford), these days one of my main research interests has become  the modelling of ultrasound image formation. On this topic I established a collaboration with Michael Oelze, Associate Professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In collaboration with other researchers (including students), I have demonstrated that one can predict the ultrasound image intensity statistics based on corresponding histology images, as well as predict the ultrasound image arising from microspheres. Currently, my aim is to predict the exact ultrasound image based on microscopic image modalities, as we have done in the case of microspheres.

My other main area of research, in collaboration with Dr. Klára Szalai of the Dermatology Clinic of Semmelweis University, is the ultrasound-based differential diagnosis of skin lesions. This is closely related to the aformentioned topic of ultrasound image formation modelling, since predicting ultrasound image features based on histology enables us to provide better ultrasound-based diagnosis. I welcome students and collaboration for both of these research topics.
