Dr. Sylvain Bouix is Assistant Professor and Associate Director, Psychiatry Neuroimaging Laboratory, Department of Psychiatry, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School. He received his B.Eng. from Institut Polytechnique de Sevenans, France his M.Sc. from the University of Kansas and his Ph.D. from McGill University. He serves as the technical leader in an interdisciplinary team of computer scientists, software engineers, and medical investigators. The PNL central theme of research is the study of brain disorders via Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), in particular schizophrenia and traumatic brain injury (TBI). Dr. Bouix facilitates the design, testing, and deployment of new image analysis algorithms and promotes their use by neuroscientists. His expertise ranges from applied mathematics and theoretical computer science to the development of robust and practical software tools for medical image analysis. His research interests include in-depth study of shape analysis and subject specific profiles of brain injury, as well as establishing robust image analysis pipelines for large multi-site neuroimaging studies.
