Professor Farny’s chief research interests center on physical acoustics, with a focus on medical applications of ultrasound. His past research has examined effects of bubble cavitation on ultrasound-induced heating in
tissue, and diagnostic methods for detecting the presence and location of cavitation during sonication. Most recently he has focused on developing novel methods for imaging brain structure through the skull with
