Nikhil holds an MS degree in computer science from USC. He has worked on head CT segmentations to calculate cross-sectional trajectories of brain volumetrics in aging populations. He is also interested in cloud computing and in the automatic segmentation of cerebral microbleeds from susceptibility weighted imaging of mild TBI patients.
Nahian holds a BS in neuroscience from USC. He is interested in brain connectomics, network theory, in the neuroimaging of geriatric TBI, in the longitudinal analysis of brain circuitry using diffusion tensor imaging, as well as in machine learning.
Ammar is pursuing an undergraduate degree in neuroscience. His research interests include brain aging in health and disease, accelerated cortical thinning in traumatic brain injury and the effects of cerebral microbleeds upon white matter connectivity.
Jun is an undergraduate student in neuroscience. Her interests include brain mapping, white matter analysis in traumatic brain injury, healthy aging and Alzheimer's disease.
Hyung Jun Josh Lee
Josh is pursuing a BS in neuroscience and mathematics. He is interested in brain aging and in utilizing statistical methods to characterize accelerated brain aging after traumatic brain injury, during mild cognitive impairment and in Alzheimer's disease.
Alexander holds a BS in quantitative biology from USC and is now a graduate student in the same program. His primary research focus involves the effects of traumatic brain injury and Alzheimer's disease on the default mode network of the human brain.
Sean completed his BS in Biomedical Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis. He is interested in studying the effects of cerebral microbleeds due to traumatic brain injury and in post-traumatic demyelination of the cerebral cortex.
Van holds a BS in Human Biology (concentration in Bioethics and Public Science Policy) from UCLA. He is interested in the role of structural connectome alterations associated with cerebral microbleeds due to traumatic brain injury.
Shai is studying the locus coeruleus using structural and functional magnetic resonance imaging as well as the role of this structure in modulating heart rate variability. His training is in psychology, neuroscience and brain imaging. His primary adviser is Mara Mather and Prof. Irimia is both co-adviser and chairman of Shai's dissertation committee.
David holds an MS in psychology from California State University. His interests include neuropsychological testing of older adults with mild cognitive impairment, dementia and mild traumatic brain injury. His skills also include magnetic resonance imaging and statistical analysis.
Kenneth holds a BS in neuroscience from USC. He is interested in dementia, in mapping longitudinal alterations of older adults' white matter circuitry caused by brain injury, and in automated segmentation methods.
Judy is an undergraduate student in quantitative biology with a minor in neuroscience. She is interested in cortical and white matter aging in health and disease, especially after neurotrauma and in Alzheimer's disease.
Elliot studied the default mode network (DMN) and how resting state activity in the DMN differs between healthy controls, AD patients and TBI victims. Elliot graduated from USC in 2020 with a neuroscience major and with minors in both astronomy and computer programming.
Maria completed a BS in psychology at the University of Glasgow and an MA in experimental psychology at NYU, focusing on neuropsychology and neuroscience. Her interests include cognitive deficits after mild traumatic brain injury, and their assessment using neurophychological testing.
Sean holds an undergraduate degree in bioengineering from UC San Diego and a master's degree in computer science from USC. After using statistical analysis and cloud computing to study neuroscience problems, Sean transitioned to an industry position at 23&Me.
