Guorong Wu, PhD
Guorong Wu (PI) is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Department of Computer Science at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. He is the recipient of NIH Career Development Award. His research interests are medical image analysis, machine learning, scientific data visualization, and computer assisted diagnosis. He is interested in the data-driven research to explore neuroscience problems and systematic solution to improve the healthcare in clinic practice. Currently, he leads several NIH and NSF funded research projects include (1) early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease by longitudinal image analysis, (2) longitudinal analysis of the dynamic network disruptions in Alzheimer’s disease, (3) biomarkers across neurodisorders, (4) 3D nuclear segmentation for light sheet microscopy images of mouse brain, and (5) spontaneous pain assessment using deep learning technology.
Sang Kyoon Park, MS
SK Park holds the master's degree from KAIST, Korea. His lifelong question is to model how a world works in a mathematical manner. So latter half of his study was focused on the topics including simulation and machine learning. He has studied various fields and tried to use those knowledge for a real problems. He has programmed with several languages since 30 years ago, which helped him when he studied those subjects. His current projects include automatic mouse grimace and DTI image processing.
Junbo Ma, PhD
Junbo Ma is a Post-Doc research associate in ACM lab. He earned his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Massey University, New Zealand, in 2019. His research interests include medical image analysis, computational neuroscience, and interpretable machine learning. His current research project is 3D nucleus instance segmentation on tissue clearing light-sheet microscopy images.

About me: I am a neuroscience major and a PPE (philosophy, politics, and economics) minor. I am a freshman. I like learning about neuronal plasticity and what role does neurogenetics play in the cognitive performance of individuals. I often like to read various political and philosophical books in my free time or play sports such as hockey and rugby.
Varun Saitej Indugula
About me: I am a Sophomore at UNC-Chapel Hill studying neuroscience and I am interested in pursuing research in that field. I am from Cary, NC and I am interested in the cross-section between neuroscience and computer science. I love to watch horror movies, go skiing, and I am a fan of football and basketball. Go Heels!
