Livesey Highlights

Karen Livesey, PhD

Bio-Physics interests:

Magnetic nanoparticles for use in magnetic hyperthermia and as MRI contrast agents.
In particular, we are interested in understanding how small-scale structures (chaining and clumping of particles) alter the effectiveness in different biomedical applications.
