My research focuses on biomedical image analysis. I am interested in both theory development and applications to real world problems. I am excited by interdisciplinary work, having collaborated and worked with researchers and practitioners in mathematics, various engineering disciplines,  and in the medical fields. I am particularly interested in the interplay between disciplines,  where theory drives applications and applications influence theory development.

Much of my work so far has focused on shape analysis, segmentation and registration approaches. Most recently my group and I have focused on very fast image registration approaches based on deep learning. My current application areas are (1) neuroscience and neurodevelopment, (2) osteoarthritis, (3) pediatrics, and (4) cancer. [CV]
