Mert R. Sabuncu
Mert received a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Princeton University. He was then a post-doctoral fellow at MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. After several years as a faculty member at Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging (Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital), he moved to Cornell as Assistant Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering, with a secondary appointment in Biomedical Engineering. Broadly speaking, his research interests lie at the intersection of artificial intelligence, biomedical data analysis, and healthcare. [Curriculum Vitae]
Meenakshi is a second year graduate student in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Cornell. Previously, she graduated with a B. Tech-M. Tech dual degree in electrical engineering from IIT Kanpur and worked as a research associate at the Yale School of Medicine in the department of neurology. While at Yale, Meenakshi worked on investigating the neural underpinnings of consciousness using EEG and fMRI. Broadly, her research interests lie in the application of machine learning to neuroimaging data and she plans to study the structural and functional connectome.
Evan is a PhD student at Cornell BME.
Evan comes to Cornell after four delightful years of undergraduate studies at Stony Brook University. Through his research experience at the Psychiatry Department in Stony Brook Hospital and at the Radiology Department in Weill Cornell, he developed an interest in machine learning. He is currently a Ph.D student in the Meinig School of Biomedical Engineering. Among other things, Evan enjoys going downhill in his snowboard and mastering his culinary skills during his free time.
Zhilu is a second year graduate student in ECE.
Zhilu obtained his Bachelor’s degree at Carleton College where he double majored in math and physics. He was born in China and lived in various countries like Japan and Singapore. His research interests are in machine learning and its application to biomedical problems. In his free time, Zhilu likes to cook, listen to music and exercise.
Gia H. Ngo
Gia is a graduate student in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Cornell. Previously, Gia received his B.Eng from the National University of Singapore (NUS). His research interests are applications of machine learning to medical image analysis. Gia has worked with Prof. Thomas Yeo at the Computational Brain Imaging Group at NUS, developing new Bayesian models to estimate reference atlases of brain networks from large datasets of neuroimages. Gia also has an interest in natural language processing. He has worked with Dr. Nancy Chen at Human Language Technology department at the Institute of Infocomm Research, A*STAR on transliteration in limited resource scenarios.
Artem is a second-year graduate student in Physics, on a Mong Fellowship. Artem obtained his Bachelor’s degree at the University of Texas at Dallas in Physics and Mathematics, with a Computer Science minor. He has research experience in abstract mathematics and hydrodynamic simulations at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization in Germany. He also has software industry experience at Amazon AWS.
His current research interests are in generative models for neural behavior, as well as control problems, in collaboration with the Goldberg Lab.
Matthew started his PhD in Electrical Engineering at Cornell in the fall of 2018. He graduated from UMass Amherst with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering in the spring of that same year. His previous research and work experience was primarily in the field of electromagnetics, but his current research interests lie in the broad area of machine learning applied to biomedical data. In his free time he enjoys writing and hiking, and he is an avid gamer.
