Postdoctoral Researcher

German Primate Center


My name is Rakshit Dadarwal, and I work as a postdoctoral researcher at the Functional Imaging Lab of the German Primate Center in Göttingen, Germany.

My research focuses on the acquisition and processing of multi-contrast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data using advanced methods and machine learning approaches. I am particularly interested in imaging myelin and iron in the central nervous system and studying healthy aging using Diffusion-weighted Imaging (DWI), Quantitative Susceptibility Mapping (QSM), Magnetization Transfer Imaging, and T1 and T2-relaxometry.
I love yoga, jogging, badminton, cricket, and, of course, dancing.
