Dr. rer. nat. Wasif Zia received a National Distinction before starting his doctorate at RWTH Aachen University, Germany, where he also co-authored a leading textbook on compact/mobile NMR devices (Compact NMR, De Gruyter Boston/Berlin 2014).
He holds the world record in the smallest permanent magnet based novel MR devices including single-sided, and closed Halbach-like geometries. He specializes in data acquisition techniques and MR methodologies to tackle low signal, high noise environments.
After his doctorate, he went on to develop high wattage flexible coils and other rigid coils for medical 7T MRI scanner in the UK. Currently, he is developing his homogeneous field skills for industry to combine them with the inhomogeneous field.
