I did my Ph.D. in medical imaging jointly at Technical University of Munich with Nassir Navab and at Imperial College London with Guang-Zhong Yang (2008-2012). My doctoral thesis focused on scene recognition in medical images using pattern recognition and machine learning methods. My interest in human vision and perception, developed during these studies, led me to redirect my research focus and I joined the Pearson Lab at University of New South Wales as postdoctoral fellow (2012). Now, I am curiously researching on the structural and functional connectivity of the human brain and neural correlates of consciousness using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) data.
Research Interests: Structual and functional conenctivity of the human brain, fMRI, DTI, neural correlates of consciousness.
