Personal profile


My research interests are in neuroimaging and brain connectivity. My field of work is connectomics, the study of the connectome, which seeks to map the connections of the brain as a network. Connectome methods are used to map the collective wiring of many trillions of axonal nerve fibres across the brain using imaging data obtained from diffusion MRI (dMRI) and whole-brain tractography. The connectome approach provides tools to ask neuroscientific questions concerned with healthy and pathological brain organisation. This approach may also provide clues on how cerebral white matter structure correlates with cognitive function.

I also have broader interests in neuroimaging, image processing, image registration, image segmentation, tractography, network theory, statistics and machine learning.
