Imaging

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

Tiffany Chow, PhD

Postdoctoral Fellow

Tiffany Chow joined the Clinical Affective Neuroscience (CAN) Laboratory as a postdoctoral scholar in 2018. She received her PhD degree in cognitive neuroscience from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2017. Her graduate work assessed the neural correlates of episodic memory retrieval through the use of functional magnetic resonance imaging, transcranial direct current stimulation, and wearable camera technology. 

Amy Wolf

Imaging Core Manager

Amy is the imaging core manager for the Memory and Aging Center.

Eduardo Europa, PhD

Postdoctoral Scholar

Investigates the neurobiological mechanisms of language processing in neurodegenerative disease using multimodal imaging, and collaborates with UT Austin’s Aphasia Research and Treatment Laboratory to explore treatment-induced neural and behavioral changes in primary progressive aphasia (PPA).

Lorenzo Pasquini, PhD

Postdoctoral Fellow

Dr. Lorenzo Pasquini joined the Seeley lab in November 2016 as a postdoctoral fellow. He graduated in Neuroscience and Public Health at the Ludwig-Maximilan University of Munich. He obtained a PhD degree from the Technical University of Munich, where he worked under the mentorship of Dr. Christian Sorg at the Neuroimaging Center, studying large-scale brain network dysfunctions in Alzheimer’s disease, with a specific focus on multimodal neuroimaging and intrinsic activity of the medial temporal lobes.

Malu Mandelli, PhD

Assistant Professional Researcher

Maria Luisa Mandelli leads the neuroimaging research within the language team of the Memory and Aging Center. Her research focuses on neuroanatomical changes caused by language and other neurodegenerative disorders. She has been working on brain magnetic resonance imaging for the past ten years, with the goal of better understanding of how the brain develops, changes over time, and how it makes us who we are.

Renaud La Joie, PhD

Asst Professional Researcher

Renaud La Joie originally studied medicine in his native Normandy before graduating with a master’s degree in neuroscience from the Université Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris. He then pursued a PhD degree in neuropsychology with Gael Chételat and Béatrice Desgranges, where he studied Alzheimer's disease using multimodal PET and MRI imaging. Dr. La Joie then spent a year with Dr. William Jagust at the University of California, Berkeley before joining Dr. Gil Rabinovici’s lab at the Memory and Aging Center in March 2016.

Maryana Alegro Ribeiro, PhD

Postdoctoral Fellow

Dr. Alegro joined the Grinberg lab in 2015, where she uses her knowledge in image and signal processing for building computational tools to help improve the understanding of neurodegenerative diseases. She also works in building and testing prototype imaging equipment for the lab. Her major experience is in MRI and histological image processing and, more recently, polarized light imaging. Dr.
