Research Summary:

Computational methods are facilitating the next generation of biomedical imaging technologies, using new approaches for learning and leveraging information about the signals of interest to enable rapid and/or more robust image reconstruction. These approaches are complementary to the development of new imaging hardware, or the discovery of new imaging physics, and provide another pathway for extracting more information from imaging data. Dr. Chiew’s research uses these computational tools to develop new strategies for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the human brain.

Dr. Chiew’s group has several key research themes. These include:

  1. the development of novel MRI acquisition strategies for robust and high resolution functional MRI, (2) the application of sparse and low-rank imaging methods for highly accelerated neuroimaging, and
  2. the investigation of self-supervised approaches for neural network-based image reconstruction. The goal of this research program is to leverage computational advances towards the development of new technologies for discovery neuroscience, clinical neuroimaging, and image guided therapy.
