Additional Information


Dr. Reuter holds a faculty appointment at Harvard Medical School
(Instructor in Neurology) and the Massachusetts General Hospital
(Assistant in Neuroscience). He is affiliated to the Martinos Center for
Biomedical Imaging, the MIT Computer Science and Artificial
Intelligence Lab and the MIT Department of Mechanical Engineering. Dr.
Reuter's recent research focuses on unbiased longitudinal image
processing of brain MRI. His methods are widely employed as part of the
FreeSurfer software package to study neurodegeneration and assess
disease modifying therapies, e.g. by the Alzheimer's Disease
Neuroimaging Initiative. During his postoctoral research at MIT
(2006-08), supported by a Feodor-Lynen fellowship of the Alexander von
Humboldt Foundation, he contributed novel methods for non-rigid shape
analysis and processing, and received the most cited paper award 2009 of
the Computer-Aided Design journal for his manuscript on spectral shape
analysis. In 2006, he has been awarded the Leibniz prize for outstanding
scientific accomplishments by the University Hanover, Germany, where he
obtained his Ph.D. in the area of computational and differential
geometry from the department of electrical engineering and computer
science with summa cum laude in 2005. His
research interests include computational neuroimaging, computational
geometry and topology, computer and biomedical vision, computer-aided
design, geometric modeling and computer graphics.
