Who Am I?
Dr. Pawel Skudlarski, native of Wroclaw, Poland, has graduated with Master of
Theoretical Physics at University of Wroclaw in 1986 for work in the
Geometrical Field Theory with Dr. Arkadiusz Jadczyk, his graduate work was
devoted to Thoretical Condensed Matter Theory under guidance of Dr. Giovanni
Vignale. After graduating with PhD from University of Missouri-Columbia we
switched gears again and joined Dr. John Gore at Yale University to work on
Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
His work is devoted to development of methods for appplication of MRI to
Neuroscience. He has developted a software package for basic fMRI analysis and
worked on optimization of data processing algorithms. His more recent interests
are concentrated around methods of analyzing connectivity via measurements of
resting and steady state correlations in the fMRI time series and Diffusion
In September of 2006 he joined the Olin Neouropsychiatry Research Center and
concentrated in applications of Diffusion Tensor Imaging and combination of DTI
with resting connenctivity.
- Diffusion Tensor Imaging
- Low-Frequency Restting (Steady) State Conectivity
- Optimization of methods for Functional MRI
