Accelerating computational diffusion MRI using GPUs
My research focuses on high performance computing applied to the analysis of diffusion MRI (dMRI) data. I am interested in how parallel computer architectures, such as Graphics Processing Units (GPUs), can be used in scientific applications that require very high computational resources.
I am using GPUs for resolving tissue microstructural patterns and for estimating long-range brain connectivity. The immense computational power provided by modern GPUs is exploited and accelerations of up to two orders of magnitude are obtained when comparing single GPU with single-threaded CPU implementations.
