Griffin Hampton is a postbaccalaureate IRTA fellow studying computational algorithms and parameter estimation applied to magnetic resonance imaging and relaxometry in Dr. Richard G. Spencer’s lab, the Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy Section (MRISS) of the Laboratory of Clinical Investigation (LCI). Griffin has a B.S. in computational and applied mathematics, a B.S. in biochemistry, and a minor in public affairs, all from the Colorado School of Mines.
Griffin has previously done research in differential-equation based models of metabolism with Dr. Cecilia Diniz Behn and Dr. Melanie Cree-Green as well as transgenic research in the highly productive marine alga Picochlorum celeri with Dr. Matthew Posewitz and Dr. Anagha Krishnan.
Griffin is highly dedicated to biomedical research seeking to understand underlying physiological mechanisms. He sees high potential in using computational techniques to reveal often hidden insights.
