Postdoctoral Research Scientist
- Brain connectivity modelling
I am a postdoctoral researcher in FMRIB Analysis Group, working on population and individual-level modelling of brain connectivity based on functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI), and its application for prediction of non-imaging phenotypes. To that end, I am working as developer of PROFUMO project, that is focused on hierarchical variational Bayesian modelling of resting state networks based on large-scale brain imaging datasets such as Human Connectome Project and UK Biobank.
Before joining FMRIB, I did my PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience- Methods at MRC CBU, Cambridge University. My project, funded by Cambridge International Scholarship Scheme, was aimed at investigating the dynamic meaning comprehension networks in the human brain using novel approaches for Electro-/Magnetoencephalography connectivity. Prior to that, I did my undergraduate and master's studies in Biomedical Engineering- Bioelectrics at AmirKabir University of Technology.
I am happy to consider applications from prospective MPhil/DPhil students, who are interested in being co-supervised by me. To discuss possible routes, please email me your CV and research interests.
