Uzair Hussain

I am a postdoc at Robarts Research Institute at Western University, London working on computational neuroimaging. I obtained my PhD from Memorial University in theoretical physics with a focus on black holes. My MSc was in theoretical astrophysics from University of Waterloo and BSc in physics from McMaster University.

My research focuses on diffusion MRI (dMRI), and my current project aims to model diffusion processes in the neocortex which is a highly complex structure given its many folds. By using techniques from differential geometry we flatten these folds and develop mathematical models of diffusion in this flat neocortex with the aim to enhance detection of abnormalities from dMRI.
