My primary research interests are in pipelines for multi-modal MRI studies of the brain. I approach from two perspectives. As a software developer, I contribute to Camino, ANTs and ANTsR, and PipeDream. As an imaging scientist, I use these and other tools in studies of dementia, stress neurobiology and traumatic brain injury.

A list of posts by me on this site.

Some other tools I use: ITK-SNAP (for pretty much everything), DTI-TK (DTI registration and Tract Specific Analysis, example), MRIcron (mostly for Dicom to NIfTI conversion).

My thesis work focused on the development of parametric methods to estimate uncertainty in probabilistic tractography using multi-fiber reconstruction techniques, and methods to maintain even spherical coverage during diffusion acquisition. The implementation is available in the Camino toolkit.
