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 Tensor Imaging.

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.
