Dr. Anastasia Yendiki’s background is in statistical signal and image processing. She received a PhD in Electrical Engineering: Systems from the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, where she worked on inverse problems in tomographic reconstruction for nuclear imaging under the supervision of Jeff Fessler. As a postdoctoral research fellow at the Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedigal Imaging, Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital, she trained in functional and diffusion-weighted MRI. She received an NIH K99/R00 Pathway to Independence award, which led to the development of TRACULA, the diffusion-weighted MRI analysis stream in FreeSurfer, under the supervision of Bruce Fischl. She is now on the faculty at the Martinos Center and a member of the Laboratory for Computational Neuroimaging (LCN), continuing to develop publicly available, open-source algorithms for studying white-matter anatomy in health and disease.
