Research activities

My medical research is focused on developing artificial intelligence (AI) solutions to optimize brain magnetic resonance imaging acquisition and reconstruction resulting in faster and more efficient scans. I also seek to integrate longitudinal information and analysis at the image acquisition stage. I support clinicians to develop AI  techniques for clinical staging of depression subjects and for understanding the mechanisms of normal brain aging.
