HI Laboratory of Medical Imaging Research (HILMIR)
I have a long-standing interest in implementing engineering methods to solve problems in medicine.
I have extensive experience performing research on three-dimensional medical image registration and segmentation, with applications to brains, pelvises, and statistical atlases.
I have particular expertise in deformable 3D-3D image registration of magnetic resonance images of the human brain for different application purposes, including the automatic generation of subject-specific anatomical labels.
My current work focuses on developing pipelines for automatic segmentation and labeling of brain anatomy for systematic analysis of brain dysmorphology for two main application areas:
- to better characterize clinical syndromes for personalized medicine, such as in normal pressure hydrocephalus in elderly patients, and
- to bridge the two fields of medical image analysis and genetics through systematic analysis of subtle brain structural abnormalities in children with both known and unknown genetic syndromes.
