About Me

I'm a third year Neuroscience PhD student advised by Dr. Paul Thompson at the Imaging Genetics Center at the University of Southern California. My research involves diffusion MRI analysis for mapping micro- and macro-structural changes of white matter tracts in neurodegenerative diseases. I'm also interested in developing and applying ML/DL methods for large-scale multi-site neuroimaging data to promote reproducibility and reliability of results.
For all inquiries, please email me at <yixuefen at usc.edu>.
