Maribel Torres Velazquez

Current TL1 Trainee

Torres Velazquez’s thesis research will explore human brain connectivity,  specifically by processing  and characterizing Diffusion Tensor Images (DTI) for the Epilepsy Connectome Project. The aim of this study is to understand how epilepsy affects or changes the communication between brain areas. Furthermore, understanding how these alterations result in seizures and other health problems may lead to new diagnostic methods and better treatments. She is a PhD Student in Biomedical Engineering under the mentorship of Beth Meyerand, PhD, Professor of Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering.
