Computational and Mathematical Techniques for Diffusion MRI Processing

In this project, the researchers are developing new mathematical and computational models for processing diffusion MRIs, a recent non-invasive technique providing connectivity information in the brain. This powerful imaging modality has opened up a landscape of exciting discoveries for medicine and neuroscience and the tools the group is developing will result in fundamental advancements for research on pathological brain degeneration such as stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, or neuropsychiatric disorders like schizophrenia. This is a challenging task that requires both advanced mathematical models and high-performance computing capabilities.
