Overview

My research focuses on image analysis of magnetic resonance imaging data (MRI), with a focus on diffusion MRI of the brain. I am interested in extracting anatomical and topological information from diffusion MRI tractography that can be further applied to the analysis of MRI data and other neuroimaging modalities. My research in CUBRIC has been primarily focused on finding novel ways of using tractography to harmonize the analysis of longitudinal MRI data acquired at different sites for each time point.
