Medical image analysis and software

My research area is in medical image analysis, broadly defined as the extraction of quantitative information from medical images. I am particularly interested in problems where the development of innovative algorithm strategies has a direct coupling to treatment delivery in "real-time" an example of this is my work in the development of research interfaces for image-guided neurosurgery, which enabled the bridging of cutting-edge image analysis methodology to the operating room environment in a way that enables its evaluation without changes to the actual surgery and also the design of our real-time fMRI biofeedback system which uses real-time motion compensation to allow the use of fMRI as a potential treatment modality. I have also been actively involved in developing both methods and software for fMRI connectivity analysis, some of which can be found in our Yale BioImage Suite software package, whose development I originated and still coordinate. I teach a class titled "Medical Software Design," which formed the basis for the textbook "Introduction to Medical Software: Foundations for Digital Health, Devices, and Diagnostics" (Cambridge University Press 2022) and the companion Coursera Class "Introduction to Medical Software" (Yale/Coursera 2021).
