I direct the Vision and Image Processing (VIP) Laboratory. We develop algorithms to enhance the quality of medical imaging systems and to automatically detect, segment, and quantify anatomical/pathological structures seen on medical images. Along with my colleagues, we investigate how to improve early diagnostic methods and find new imaging biomarkers of neurodegenerative and ocular diseases in adults and children. Moreover, we explore the mathematical foundations of vision in brain.
