Check out the talks at the recent
Workshop on Mathematics of Brain Imaging we organized here at SFU.
Methods: Computational anatomy, algorithms for segmentation and non-rigid registration of
medical images, statistical shape
analysis of anatomical
shapes and time series of functional and structural images.
Computational Brain/Retina Anatomy and applications in diagnosis of brain/eye
diseases and following their progression over time.

I took part in a fund raising event to raise funds for research into Alzheimer's
Alzheimer Society of British Columbia by hiking up Mt. Kilimanjaro ( got
a certificate from the park). We reached
the summit of Kilimanjaro on September 13, 2010. Here is a
set of pictures I collected to showcase our journey.
