Burak Erem


Hi, my name is Burak Erem and I'm a postdoctoral research fellow in the Computational Radiology Laboratory (CRL) at Children's Hospital Boston. I received a PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Northeastern University (NU) in 2013, under the supervision of Prof. Dana H. Brooks. I also have a MS and BS in Electrical and Computer Engineering from NU. During my PhD, I was a part of the Biomedical Signal Processing, Imaging, Reasoning, and Learning (B-SPIRAL) group at NU and the Center for Integrative Biomedical Computing (CIBC) at the University of Utah. I'm interested in prospective and retrospective motion correction in MRI. I'm also interested in the analysis and functional imaging of bioelectric signals, primarily from the brain (EEG) and heart (ECG).

In general, I'm interested in imaging and signal processing problems, specializing in modeling and use of dynamics and geometric structures arising in biomedical problems and in inverse problems. This involves mathematical modeling, leveraging ideas from differential geometry, signal processing, optimization theory, and machine learning. I am also interested in developing software tools and libraries for visualization and for computationally efficient numerical solutions to challenging computational problems.
