Hi There! This is Pradeep. I am currently a Postdoctoral fellow at the Rotman Research Institute, Baycrest Health Sciences, affiliated with University of Toronto. My research interests are in medical image processing, machine learning, informatics and open science. I am interested in development of multimodal biomarkers for various neurological and psychiatric disorders, and in characterizing the impact of fundamental methodological choices.
I am passionate about bridging the gap between the clinic and computer science, and in developing necessary tools and standards to remove the barriers for predictive modelling and quality control for neuroimagers. I founded the special interest group on neuroimaging quality control at the International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility. I am an advocate for open science, and am committed to the development of open source software and reproducible science. I strongly believe in the importance of scientific communication and public engagement and their power to change policy.
