Our research group works on the development of new mathematical and computational algorithms to manipulate and analyze biomedical image data. Our work is currently motivated by the study of brain anatomy and the patterns of its change over time in two broad clinical areas: fetal and pre-term infant brain development, and neurodegenerative processes in adults.
Specifically, we have most recently contributed new approaches to the general areas of computational anatomy (deformation tensor morphometry), image registration, image segmentation and in-utero MR image formation. Our work importantly aims to address both basic methodological development, together with its practical application in real clinical problems, by working closely with a range of clinical collaborators.
