Dr. Yadav is an assistant professor in the F.M. Kirby Center at the Kennedy Krieger Institute and in the Department of Radiology at The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.


Dr. Yadav completed his tertiary studies at the University of Western Sydney, Australia. In 2010, he obtained his PhD for developing novel NMR diffusometry methods for probing porous systems. Following his PhD, he completed at post-doctoral fellowship in the group of Dr. Peter van Zijl's group at the F.M. Kirby Research Center and in the Department of Radiology at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.


Dr. Yadav research interests focus on developing novel MRI techniques for understanding brain function in normal and disease conditions. He is currently developing techniques for generating MRI contrast based on chemical exchange in vivo.
