First things first - My first name is pronounced “nee-cha.” The C in my middle name stands for Chitphakdithai, pronounced “jit-puck-tie.” You will find my older publications under this name.

I am a first-term assistant professor in the Department of Radiology & Biomedical Imaging at the Yale School of Medicine, with a secondary appointment in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the Yale School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. I develop algorithms for medical image processing and analysis. My current work focuses on applications of deep learning for analysis of functional magnetic resonance imaging data and motion correction for dynamic PET imaging.

I am a biomedical engineer by training, from my undergraduate studies at Johns Hopkins to my PhD research under James S. Duncan at Yale. In my research, I have utilized techniques spanning from Bayesian inference to modern machine learning. Biomedical applications of my work have varied from registration of brain images, to particle reconstruction for cryo-electron microscopy, to functional neuroimage analysis and neuroprediction.
