Jason is currently a PhD candidate in Medical Biophysics at Western University, supervised by Dr. Ali Khan. He previously obtained a B. Eng. in Electrical & Biomedical Engineering from McMaster University. His research primarily focuses on studying the short, U-shaped pathways that join nearby regions of the brain using diffusion MRI techniques.
The research project focuses on developing pipelines and tools to aid in the study of the brain’s structural connectivity. Additionally, the research is also concerned with the use of such pipelines and tools to perform reproducible research and aims to characterize the reliability of the developed tools. Ultimately, the project intends to provide the community with additional open resources to support research that improves understanding of the brain’s complex connections and how it gives rise to function and cognition.
