I am currently a post-doctorat fellow at working on high spatial, angular and temporal resolution diffusion MRI sequence design for structural and functional study of the diffusion process in the human brain. My work focuses HARDI acquisition and processing to infer the white-matter wiring of the brain. The aim is to understand functional coupling between certain cortical regions as well as the connectivity properties of cerebral tissues. I am under the supervision of Dr. Cyril Poupon.
I obtained a PhD in Computer Science at INRIA Sophia Antipolis - Mediterranee, supervised by R. Deriche and my M.Sc under the supervision of K. Siddiqi in Computer Science at Center for Intelligent Machines, McGill University, Montreal, Canada.
