MRI Lab Personnel
Dr. A Ted Watson
Director of Rocky Mountain Magnetic Resonance (RMMR) and Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Colorado State University (CSU). He received his B.S. in chemical engineering from the University of Texas at Austin and PhD from the California Institute of Technology. Previously, Dr. Watson was Professor and Director of the Engineering Imaging Laboratory at Texas A&M University and Department Head at CSU. Dr. Watson's research interests include the development of NMR imaging methods, flow through permeable media, and system and parameter identification (SPI).
Dr. John Baldo
Research scientist at (RMMR) and has broad experience in the MRI industry. He received his BA in Biochemistry at University of California, Berkeley and his MA and PhD in Physical Chemistry from Harvard University. Dr. Baldo has contributed to the commercial development of MRI though his work with GE NMR Instruments, Elscint, Hitachi Medical Systems, Varian NMR Instruments and Agilent’s Research Products division. Dr. Baldo’s research focus is on applications and methods development for MRI systems
Benjamin Kohn, M.S.
Research associate at RMMR. He received his BS in Chemistry from Wright State University and MS in Physical Chemistry at CSU under the direction of the late Gary Maciel. Mr. Kohn's research interests include Solid State NMR, the development of novel MR methods, flow through permeable media, and biomass-to-fuel conversion processes.
