Biography

Research

Dr. Uddin is an MRI physicist by training. His research focuses on the development and application of MRI techniques to understand the structure and function in the human brain of both healthy and diseased states (e.g., Multiple Sclerosis, HIV, Cerebral Small Vessel Disease, Stroke, Parkinson's Disease, and Hypertension). Specifically, some of his interests and expertise include:

1. Iron Mapping - relaxometry mappings (T2, T2*, T2'), Quantitative Susceptibility Mapping
2. Myelin Mapping - T2-based Myelin Water Imaging, T1w/T2w ratio mapping
3. Diffusion MRI methods - DTI, Free water imaging, NODDI, b-tensor encoding
4. Cerebrovascular Reactivity Mapping - resting-state fMRI
5. Structural and functional connectivity
