Scientific Focus

Our research efforts focus on the development of novel approaches to image analysis as applied to Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) data with the aim of developing biomarkers that can be leveraged to (i) understand the neurobiology of complex neurodevelopmental conditions such as Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), and to (ii) provide targets for developing and monitoring pharmacotherapies and interventions.

 

 

Methods

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), image analysis, statistical learning
