About Me

Assistant Professor, Chan Zuckerberg Imaging Scientist

I am an Assistant Professor at the Center for Magnetic Resonance Research (CMRR), University of Minnesota (UMN). I did my doctoral research in the area of Computer Vision and Machine Learning at National University of Singapore (NUS), where from I received my PhD in 2012. I received my postdoctoral training from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) (2013-2014), where I started my research in Brain image analysis. My research at CMRR is focused on reconstruction of white matter parameters of the brain and spine from diffusion MRI (dMRI) data. Also I am working on translational research projects applying dMRI analysis tools for understanding the white matter structural changes in neurodegenerative diseases such as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and Parkinson's Disease. I was awarded the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) Imaging Scientist grant in 2020. Currently I am working on a project proposed as part of the CZI grant, to improve the microstructure estimation from diffusion MRI using microscopy data.
