Postdoctoral Fellows and Guest Scholars
Kichang Kwak, Ph.D.
Kichang obtained his Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering at Hanyang University in Seoul, Korea. Before joining the lab he was a Postdoctral Fellow at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. Kichang is studying brain organization and reorganization in Alzheimer’s disease using deep learning approaches.
Na Young Shin, M.D., Ph.D.
Graduate Students and Research Assistants
William Stanford, B.S.
William has undergraduate degrees in Neuroscience and Math from the University of Texas at Dallas. He is a second year graduate student in the Neuroscience Curriculum of the Biological and Biomedical Sciences Ph.D. Program. William is interested in studying mechanisms by which the brains of individuals are differentially impacted in aging and neurodegenerative disease. He’s also interested in the application of deep learning to build generative models of the brain that can then be systematically modified for further characterization of these mechanisms.
Keerti is a sophomore at UNC-Chapel Hill double majoring in Nutrition and Human Development & Family Studies. Keerti is assisting projects focused on brain network connectivity in neurodegenerative diseases.
Shivam is a sophomore at UNC-Chapel Hill majoring in Biology. He is interested in co-morbidities in Alzheimer’s disease.
