Dr. Arkiev D’Souza is a specialist in pipeline development, automation, and implementation with a focus on neuroimaging. He earned his PhD by leveraging advanced MRI techniques to quantitatively assess skeletal muscle structure in individuals affected by muscle contracture, a condition commonly seen in stroke survivors and children living with cerebral palsy. Following his graduation, Arkiev continued to contribute to the field of neuroimaging as a research officer and post-doctoral research associate. In these roles, he successfully implemented cutting-edge diffusion analysis pipelines in both healthy and patient cohorts. Currently, as a neuroimaging analysis fellow, Arkiev is dedicated to ensuring that cutting-edge neuroimaging analysis pipelines are readily available to MRI users within the NIF network.
