Julia completed her PhD in Bioengineering from UCSF/UC Berkeley under the supervision of Dr. Srikantan Nagarajan.  Her thesis explored source localization with magentoencephalography and applications to functional connectivity.  As a postdoctoral fellow, under the supervision of Dr. Pratik Mukherjee and Dr. Sherr, she has focused on diffusion MRI and functional MRI.  She has published papers on graph theoretic approaches to both imaging modalities and has applied these techniques to AgCC.  She is involved with the Simons FCAP project using diffusion MRI to characterize 16p11.2 deletions and duplications.  Overall, she is interested in using noninvasive brain imaging to better understand brain development and associated neurological disorders.
