Dr. Baker earned her undergraduate degree in physics at Harvard University. She earned her masters and doctorate in medical physics from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and subsequently earned a doctorate in medicine from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. She completed her transitional internship at Hennepin County Medical Center, radiology residency at the University of Minnesota, and neuroradiology fellowship at Johns Hopkins University.

Dr. Baker has been a staff radiologist (neuroradiology section) at the Clinical Center Diagnostic Radiology Department since 2004.

Dr. Baker’s research interests focus on quantitative MR spectroscopy applied to diseases of the brain. She collaborates with multiple research groups from various NIH institutes, including groups studying pediatric HIV/AIDS, Niemann-Pick disease type C (NPC), infantile neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis (INCL), methylmalonic acidemia (MMA), cerebrotendinous xanthomatosis, and the undiagnosed diseases program. Some research support is also devoted to quantitative MR imaging of the brain, such as quantitative diffusion tensor imaging (measurements of fractional anisotropy and apparent diffusion coefficient), T1 measurements, and T2 measurements.
