About Myself

I am a research assistant professor of the School of Engineering at Vanderbilt University. I am working with Dr. Bennett Landman. I earned my PhD in Computer Science at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill under the supervision of Dr. Martin Styner. My research interest is mainly in developing novel algorithms for medical image analysis. My current research focuses on surface-based analysis to understand/explore highly convoluted shapes such as brain. In particular, I am working on surface registration, anatomical/geometric feature extraction/recognition, statistical shape analysis, and 3D visualization.
