Thesis title: "Robust and Repeatable Fitting of Implicit Polynomial Curves to Point Data Sets and to Intensity Images"
Dr. Tasdizen currently leads an interdisciplinary research effort to build computational tools for reconstructing neural circuit diagrams from large numbers of very high resolution microscopy images. Dr. Tasdizen also collaborates with researchers in the Center for Alzheimer's Care Imaging and Research (CACIR) and the Department of Neurology where he holds an adjunct faculty position.
Dr. Tasdizen is the SCI Institute's second USTAR faculty member. USTAR is an innovative, aggressive and far-reaching effort to bolster Utah's economy with high-paying jobs and keep the state vibrant in the Knowledge Age. The USTAR Support Coalition and the Salt Lake Chamber sought public and private investment to recruit world-class research teams in carefully targeted disciplines. These teams will develop products and services that can be commercialized in new businesses and industries.
