    Collapse Overview
    My research spans an interdisciplinary cross-section of medical image processing, and neuroscience covering clinical neurology and neuropsychiatry. In the fields of medical image processing and analysis, I have studied on multi-spectral image registration and segmentation, surface modeling of cortical/subcortical structures which are the prerequisite techniques to proceed the analysis of structural and functional brain imaging studies.
    I also applied various analytic frameworks, including cortical morphometry, voxel-based morphometry, deformation-based morphometry and structural network analysis, to assessment of brain structure in healthy conditions as well as pathological conditions, which often present anatomical variations beyond the range of normal structures.
    Here in UCSF radiology, I continue to expand aforementioned techniques to the analysis of fetal/neonatal brain MRIs, which has been challenged by tissue intensity variability, low tissue contrast, small brain size, moving artifact and etc.
