Ying-Qiu Zheng

DPhil Student

I am a DPhil student at Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging, FMRIB Analysis group, under the supervision of Stephen Smith and Saad Jbabdi. My research interests sit at the interface between image analysis methods and individual variability of brain activity. Before coming to Oxford, I worked at Montreal Neurological Institute with Alain Dagher and Bratislav Misic on modelling neurodegenerative disorders.

My current research focuses on two lines. One line is to harness high-quality MRI datasets to facilitate analysis of low- or routine-quality data (that are often encountered in clinical settings) using probabilistic models; the other is to exploit information in multimodal MRI to localise fine-grained brain regions (e.g., subcortical deep nuclei) for individual subjects. The aim is to supplement existing diagnosis tools and clinical procedures (e.g., in pre-surgical planning), particularly when the data is of limited quality or the patients are unable to perform a specific task during operations.

I am a member of St Edmund Hall at Oxford. In my spare time, I do photography with a particular interest in trees (and in portraits occasionally). See Portfolio for my photography works.
