Ali Gholipour is an Assistant Professor in Radiology at Harvard Medical School, a member of the Computational Radiology Laboratory (CRL) at Children's Hospital Boston. He received a PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) in 2008, and the M.Sc. and B.Sc. degrees both in Electrical Engineering from the University of Tehran (UT), in 2003 and 2001, respectively. During his PhD he collaborated with the Neuroradiology division at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, where he conducted research on medical imaging, in particular on the development of new techniques for enhanced brain functional localization. His earlier research work involved robotics, systems control, and intelligent prediction of complex systems.
Ali’s research at CRL is focused on super-resolution image reconstruction, sparse representations, and inverse problems with applications in motion-robust high-resolution fetal and pediatric MRI. Through novel technology development in this area he has been looking at the mechanism of brain development, neurodevelopmental disorders, congential anomalies, and the analysis of brain functional and structural connectivity. His research interests involve signal, image, and information processing with emphasis on biomedical applications.
