Title: Computational Representation of Brain Architectures
Speaker: Tianming Liu, University of Georgia.
Abstract: Understanding and mapping the organizational architectures of the
brain has been of keen interest for centuries. With the advancements of modern
imaging techniques and computational sciences, the pace of scientific
discoveries of principles underlying the evolution, development, and
organization of brain architectures has been accelerated. This talk will
present our recent discoveries of general principles of structural,
connectional and functional brain architectures by using multi-scale multimodal
neuroimaging data as the information source and by designing novel
computational methods. Applications of these discovered principles in
neuroscience, medicine and computer science will be showcased and discussed.
Biography: Dr. Tianming Liu is an Assistant Professor (Associate Professor with
Tenure effective August, 2013) of Computer Science at The University of
Georgia. Dr. Liu is also affiliated faculty with the UGA Bioimaging Research
Center (BIRC), the UGA Biomedical and Health Sciences Institute (BHSI), the UGA
Institute of Bioinformatics (IOB), and the UGA College of Engineering. Before
he moved to UGA, Dr. Liu was a faculty member of Weill Medical College of
Cornell University (Assistant Professor, 2007-2008) and Harvard Medical School
(Instructor, 2005-2007). Dr. Liu was a postdoc in neuroimaging in the
University of Pennsylvania (2002-2004) and Harvard Medical School (2004-2005).
Dr. Liu received his PhD in computer science from Shanghai Jiaotong University.
Dr. Liu's research focuses on biomedical image analysis and has published over
120 peer-reviewed papers in this area. He is the recipient of the Microsoft
Fellowship Award (2000-2002), the NIH K01 Career Award (2007-2012) and the NSF
CAREER Award (2012-2017).
