My research is on the development and application of machine learning algorithms for medical image analysis and processing. My current work focuses on deep learning methods for learning from functional magnetic resonance imaging data with application to autism spectrum disorders. I am driven by the ultimate goal of better understanding neurological disorders and diseases to achieve more personalized medicine.
