Project summary

Janaina is an engineer and neuroscientist who leads a research group at the Computer Science Department, University College London. Her research focuses on developing and applying machine-learning models to investigate complex relationships between neuroimaging data and multidimensional descriptions of mental health disorders. More specifically, Janaina’s research investigates the following questions: can we learn about underlying brain mechanisms of mental disorders from these relationships? Can we better stratify patient groups based on these relationships? Can we combine information from clinical assessments with different neuroimaging modalities to build better diagnostic and prognostic models of mental health disorders?
