Multi- modal neuroimaging. media art.

My name is ~Zaki,

I am a PhD student in neuroscience and psychiatry at the Douglas Mental Health Institute & McGill University in Montreal, Canada.

I am working on novel computational modelling of human neuroanatomy in life and beyond, to reveal signatures of neurological and psychiatric diseases.

I use imaging tools and behavioural assessments to study brain anatomy and cognitive skills,

Beyond Neuroscience, I am interested in multimedia art and philosophy.
