Our research concentrates on analyzing large-scale cross-sectional and longitudinal neuroimaging data. Specifically, we are interested in population characterization with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), multi-parametric studies (DTI, sMRI, qMRI), and shape modeling.


We are working technologies to enable large-scale and high throughput medical image analysis. Current projects include investigation of statistical label fusion techniques and multi-modal MRI approaches. In support of the VUIIS Center for Computational Imaging, we are developing  imaging informatics and automated analysis technologies.  For more details please visit
