Assistant Professor of Radiology, Harvard Medical School
Scientist, Boston Children's Hospital
Davood Karimi is an Assistant Professor in Radiology at Harvard Medical School, and a Scientist in the Computational Radiology Laboratory in the Radiology Department at Boston Children's Hospital. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Canada. His Ph.D. dissertation was focused on image reconstruction and enhancement for cone-beam computed tomography. After completing his Ph.D., he worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at UCLA and UBC mostly on projects centered on developing machine learning-based methods for medical image segmentation and cancer detection and grading in digital histopathology. His research at IMAGINE involves development of new deep learning algorithms for medical image analysis, including improved algorithms and techniques for motion-robust fetal and newborn imaging for the analysis of early brain development.
