Rob Smith
Florey Facility Fellow

Dr Robert Smith completed Bachelors degrees in Applied Physics and Electronic Engineering at RMIT University in 2008 and has since completed a PhD and subsequent post-doctoral research at the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health. His research focuses on the development of advanced processing and reconstruction methods for the analysis of diffusion MRI data, which enable robust inference of brain white matter connectivity and derivation of / inference on quantitative measures in the presence of complex white matter fibre configurations. These developments, in addition to other advanced data processing tools, are made freely available to the research community as part of the software package MRtrix3, for which extensive community support is provided via online forum and software teaching workshops. Dr Smith additionally provides support for the two 3T human MRI systems installed at the Melbourne Brain Centre in Heidelberg, which includes the recent Siemens Prisma scanner upgrade.
