Mark MikkelsenPh.D.
  • Assistant Professor of Neuroimaging in Radiology

Mark Mikkelsen, Ph.D., is an assistant professor of neuroimaging at Weill Cornell Medicine. He was awarded his doctorate in neuroimaging at the Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Centre (CUBRIC). He specializes in magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) research, developing novel methodologies and applying them to neuropsychiatric and neurological disorders and diseases. In particular, he focuses on advanced methods for the noninvasive measurement of low-concentration metabolites in the living human brain, such as the inhibitory neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and the antioxidant glutathione (GSH). Dr. Mikkelsen also develops open-source software and data processing tools for analyzing MRS data.

Jessica ArchibaldPh.D.
  • Postdoctoral Associate in Radiology

Jessica Archibald earned her B.Sc. in Biological Sciences from the University of Guelph, Ontario, Canada, and pursued her M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees at the University of British Columbia, British Columbia, Canada. Her research centered on the neurobiology of pain using advanced magnetic resonance imaging techniques. Her Ph.D., focused on non-invasive neurochemical measures yielding a normative database of structural, functional, and biochemical measures of the adult human brain. These findings aid disease comparisons and can benefit individuals with neurological disorders by advancing scientific understanding. Jessica's academic journey has been supported by NSERC scholarships throughout her graduate studies. Additionally, she has been honored with multiple travel awards that enabled her to conduct research projects at Balgrist University Hospital in Switzerland. There, she gained valuable experience working with patients afflicted by neurological disorders, particularly those suffering from neuropathic pain, while further honing her analytical skills.
