Research Interests

My main interest is in estimating brain connectivity using functional and diffusion MRI techniques in combination with advanced data modelling. I am using machine learning and graph theoretical approaches to model the healthy brain and to understand how diseases like multiple sclerosis affects brain connectivity at a global and local level.
