Imaging

People who primarily work with neuroimaging techniques or in the imaging core.

Torie Tsuei

Staff Research Associate

Torie is a research associate in the Memory and Aging Center who manages the International NeuroHIV Cure Consortium imaging archive at UCSF. She is a recent graduate of the UCSF Masters of Science in Biomedical Imaging program, where she completed her thesis examining longitudinal changes in brain integrity during HIV using diffusion tensor imaging.

Matthew Goh

Research Data Analyst

Matthew builds prognostic models using magnetic resonance imaging data to show brain atrophy patterns in patients with frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD). He develops, maintains and improves end-to-end neuroimage processing pipelines to transform raw MRI scans into actionable feature vectors for machine learning models.

Adam Staffaroni, PhD

Assistant Professor

Dr. Staffaroni is a neuropsychologist at the UCSF Memory and Aging Center. He provides clinical neuropsychological assessments, and his research focuses on predicting disease progression and improving endpoints for clinical trials in neurodegenerative diseases. He obtained a PhD in Clinical Psychology at Palo Alto University, with an emphasis in neuropsychology. He completed a clinical internship at the West Los Angeles VA Health Care System and a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in neuropsychology at the UCSF Memory and Aging Center.

Maxime Montembeault, PhD

Postdoctoral Scholar

Dr. Montembeault is a postdoctoral scholar at the UCSF Memory and Aging Center in the ALBA Language Neurobiology Lab led by Dr. Marilu Gorno Tempini. He completed a BS degree with honors in psychology and a PhD degree in clinical neuropsychology from University of Montreal. He aims at using multimodal neuroimaging and innovative assessment tools to better understand semantic and social cognition impairments in patients with neurodegenerative diseases.

Fatemeh Noohibezanjani, PhD

Postdoctoral Fellow

Fatemeh Noohi joined the Clinical Affective Neuroscience (CAN) Laboratory as a postdoctoral scholar in September 2018. She completed her PhD degree in a dual degree program of Psychology & Kinesiology in the University of Michigan. Her graduate work was focused on using neuroimaging (fMRI) and non-invasive brain stimulation (GVS) techniques to assess the neural correlates of vestibular processing and multisensory integration in healthy older adults.

Alexandra Monrroy

Assistant Clinical Research Coordinator

Alexandra Monrroy is an assistant clinical research coordinator in the Rosen Lab.

Suvi Hakkinen, PhD

Postdoctoral Fellow

Dr. Suvi Hakkinen is a postdoctoral scholar in the Dementia Imaging Genetics Laboratory led by Dr. Suzee Lee. She received her PhD degree from the Department of Psychology and Logopedics at the University of Helsinki in 2018, where she completed her dissertation on the functional organization of human auditory cortex during active auditory tasks. She joined the Memory and Aging Center in 2018 to deepen her understanding of various neuroimaging methods and their relevance to clinical research.

Enrique Esteinou

Clinical Research Coordinator

Enrique Esteinou is a clinical research coordinator in the Rosen Lab.

Taylor Mellinger

Assistant Clinical Research Coordinator

Taylor is an assistant clinical research coordinator in the Rabinovici In Vivo Molecular Imaging Lab.

Amelia Strom

Staff Research Associate

A Bay Area native, Amelia recently graduated from UC Santa Barbara with a degree in biopsychology. As an undergraduate, she investigated the neural representations of optical illusions using electroencephalography (EEG). After graduation, she returned to the Bay Area to join Dr. Gil Rabinovici’s lab at the Memory and Aging Center as a research associate, where she works with positron emission tomography (PET) to visualize amyloid, tau and glucose metabolism in neurodegenerative disorders.
