Simon K. Warfield, Ph.D. (June 1996-December 2006)
Dr. Warfield is the Director of the Computational Radiology Laboratory (CRL) in the Department of Radiology at Children's Hospital Boston, a Research Affiliate of CSAIL at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and an Associate Professor of Radiology at Harvard Medical School.
Dr. Warfield founded the Computational Radiology Laboratory in 2001. The CRL was formed with the mission of improving our understanding of the structure and function of the brain and other organs of the human body, in order to improve our capacity to diagnose and treat disease. Members of the CRL achieve this by developing novel technologies and computational modeling strategies for understanding and interpreting radiological images.
His research in the field of medical image analysis has focussed on methods for quantitative image analysis through novel segmentation and registration approaches, and in real-time image analysis, enabled by high performance computing technology, in support of surgery. A brief summary of Dr. Warfield's research interests is here.
Before joining Brigham and Women's Hospital in June 1996, he studied for a PhD at the School of Computer Science and Engineering of the University of New South Wales, in Sydney, Australia. His PhD in Computer Science and Engineering was awarded in April 1997.
