Neuroimaging and image analysis

Research Interests:

Developing new image computing tools and applying them to facilitate the detection of imaging biomarkers for various neurological disorders.

Research Profile

The role of medical imaging is crucial in understanding how the brain is constructed and functions in healthy and diseased states. The objective of my research is trying to develop and apply various computational methodologies to objectively describe the brain structure and behavior.
