Research summary

As a computer scientist, I am interested in  developing cutting-edge methods that have applications in neuroimaging that will ultimately improve neurosurgical outcome. I currently work on the development of new interactive visualization methods to display diffusion MRI data. I am also the main developer of the Fibernavigator, a tool designed for the real-time visualization of tractography data.

Research topics

There have been huge advances in the sophistication of brain imaging techniques to treat brain diseases, but computational infrastructure to support the guidance of such treatment has lagged behind, hindering accessibility to their robust deployment. My goals are to develop a set of new mathematical and computational tools that can handle the complexity of these data in a time efficient manner.
