Postdoctoral Research Scientist

  • Brain connectivity modelling

Research

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 Probabilistic Functional Modes (PROFUMO) project. Recently, I developed stochastic PROFUMO (sPROFUMO), that is designed to simultaneously and hierarchically estimate brain networks for big populations (e.g. UK Biobank with expected 100,000 subjs) and every individual therein.

Before joining FMRIB in 2018, I did my PhD in Brain Imaging Methods for Neuroscience 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.
