Neil Weisenfeld received his B.S.E. in Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania in 1991 and a S.M. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT in 2002. He worked for three years as a Computer Engineer at NIH on parallel computing solutions for electron microscopy and positron emission tomography (PET) before devoting three years solely to PET imaging in schizophrenia. At MIT Neil worked on software and hardware for image- guided surgery applications before leaving for several years in industry. He is now a PhD candidate in Cognitive and Neural Systems at Boston University while working as a Research Software Engineer at Children's Hospital and a Research Associate at Harvard Medical School. His interests include neuroanatomy, in-vivo imaging of the developing brain, image-guided neurosurgery, and various computer vision and pattern recognition applications in these fields.
