My name is Rakshit Dadarwal, and I work at the Department of Neurology with Institute for Translational Neurology, University Hospital Münster, Germany.

My research focuses on the acquisition and processing of multi-contrast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data. I am particularly interested in imaging myelin and iron in the central nervous system using diffusion weighted imaging (DWI), quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM), magnetisation transfer imaging and T1 and T2 relaxometry.
I love yoga, jogging, badminton, cricket, and, of course, dancing.
