Dr Moradi completed his PhD in biomedical computing at Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario in 2008. He has since served as a research associate at the University of British Columbia, and a lecturer of biomedical engineering at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada. He joined SPL in 2011 as a visiting research scientist.

Broad Research Interests:
Image-guided therapy and diagnosis
Machine learning in medical image analysis
