Dr. Weiying Dai received a B.S. in Mathematics from Peking University and a Ph.D.
in Computer Science from University of Pittsburgh. Before joining Binghamton University
in 2015, she was an instructor at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center & Harvard medical
school. Her research interests include brain mapping, neuroimaging, blood flow imaging,
biomedical image processing, pattern recognition, computer vision and information
retrieval. She, together with her collaborators, invented and advanced a Magnetic
Resonance Imaging (MRI) technique that has been implemented on GE MRI scanners and
become a popular clinical imaging tool for quantitatively measuring blood flow as
it moves through the body. Dr. Dai is a selected Junior Fellow of the International
Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM). She has also twice received the
Lawrie B. Morrison Research Award for Exemplary Contribution to Research in the Radiological
Sciences in Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School.
