Kalina Polet Slavkova


Physicist | Computational Oncology and Deep Learning for MRI | Seeking Opportunities Intersecting Physics & Biology

Welcome to my personal website!


I am a PhD student in Physics at the University of Texas at Austin.

My research involves the implementation of deep learning techniques to accelerate the acquisition of dynamic images from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with a high spatio-temporal resolution for quantitative imaging.

Additionally, I analyze dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE) MRI data from breast imaging using perfusion models to extract quantitative tissue information that may inform screening and mathematical modeling efforts.

I am formally advised by Thomas Yankeelov, Ph.D. in the Center for Computational Oncology and informally advised by Jonathan Tamir, Ph.D. in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UT Austin.

Please feel free to explore my research and other information across this website! I am more than happy to answer questions and have discussions
