My name is Davi Marco Lyra-Leite, I am currently a PhDEE student working at the Magnetic Resonance Engineering Laboratory of the University of Southern California under supervision of Professor Krishna Nayak, PhD. I am also an Health, Technology and Engineering student, a program that aims to foster collaboration between professionals between healthcare related fields and professionals to promote innovation.
I work with magnetic resonance imaging, currently focusing on image formation and analysis. My researches aim at developing image formation algorithms - applied especially to MR of flow and MRA -, also implementing automatic methods for human fat phenotype classification based on image segmentation and registration. I am also interested in cardiovascular and cancer MRI.
