Former members of the OMG

Yunjie Tong, Ph.D.

Yunjie Tong became an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Purdue University in January, 2017.  He is originally from Beijing, China, where he received his BS degree in Physics from Beijing University and his PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Tufts University. His thesis topic was on multimodal functional brain imaging and fast optical imaging of peripheral nerves. His current work includes concurrent functional MRI and functional near infrared spectroscopy and developments of new experimental and analytical methods in functional brain imaging. He enjoys travel as much as science. When he could not travel, he does running and rock climbing besides science.

Kimberly P. Lindsey, Ph.D.

Kimberly Lindsey was an instructor in Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School, Assistant Research Pharmacologist, and Chief of Pharmacologic Imaging at McLean Hospital. She received a BA in Psychology from the University of Texas at Austin and a PhD in Biological and Biomedical Science (Molecular and Systems Pharmacology) from Emory University in Atlanta. Her training was in behavioral psychopharmacology of abused drugs and in in vivo neuroimaging of the effects of acute drug administrations in human and nonhuman primates. Her research was focused on nicotine and non-nicotine factors that affect the reinforcing properties of tobacco cigarette smoking.

Lia M. Hocke, Ph.D.

Lia Maria Hocke received her PhD in Biomedical Engineering at Tufts University in 2015 and went on to a postdoc at the University of Calgary.  She studied Psychology and Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience at the University of Maastricht in the Netherlands. Since 2010 she worked under the supervision of Dr. Frederick and Dr. Tong at McLean Hospital as part of her Research Masters in Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience and her PhD in Biomedical Engineering at Tufts. She established theoretical and methodological research skills in the fields of functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS), including optimization of acquisition (development of fMRI-compatible NIRS probes) and analysis (MATLAB, FSL & SPM) of fNIRS data, on its own and with concurrent fMRI.

Sinem Burcu Erdogan, Ph.D.

Sinem Burcu Erdoğan is an assistant professor of Medical Engineering at Acıbadem University. She received her Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from Boğaziçi University, Istanbul, Turkey in 2014. During her graduate school training, she worked in the design and optimization of a custom made functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) instrument for monitoring brain hemodynamics, and developed data processing tools for multimodal fNIRS-fMRI data analysis. Sinem has a deep interest in combining multimodal neuroimaging data analysis methods to understand the distinct features of oscillatory brain hemodynamics in healthy individuals and in persons with neuropsychiatric and neurodegenerative disorders. Currently, she is working with the OMG on a physiological denoising method for improving sensitivity and specificity of fMRI data.
