About the Author
Dr. King received a BSc. (Hons) degree in Computer Science from Manchester University in 1989, an MSc. (with distinction) in Cognition, Computing and Psychology from Warwick University in 1992, and a PhD degree in Computer Science from Warwick University in 1997. He has been a postdoctoral researcher with the Computational Imaging Sciences Group and the Division of Imaging Sciences at King's College London, working mainly on registration, image-guided interventions and soft-tissue modelling. From 2001-2005 he worked as an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science department at Mekelle University in Northern Ethiopia. His research focuses on motion estimation and modelling. Dr. Aljabar's research centres on developing algorithms for analysing medical images of the brain such as MR data. The main goal is to characterise salient features of the anatomy and the development or degeneration of the brain. He is interested in combining the established and fundamental tools of medical image processing, such as registration and anatomical segmentation, with machine learning methods in order to develop novel methodologies for group and longitudinal studies using MR data sets. In particular, he is keen on finding out how fundamental medical image processing methods may be informed by, as well as help create, population-level representations.
