    Ms Sruthi Srinivasan

    University Position
    PhD student


    My research focuses on the application of the non-invasive optical imaging method known as near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) to dementia populations. I am primarily focused on utilising high-density diffuse optical tomography (HD-DOT) data to build robust and interpretable machine learning models that can identify optical biomarkers of early-stage dementia. I also investigate blood oxygenation in the brain via functional connectivity and graph theory methods. Additionally, I work on image reconstruction methods to accurately localise the NIRS signal to the atrophied brain. While my primary focus is not on data collection, I am part of the investigative team for the Optical Neuroimaging and Cognition study, which explores brain oxygenation and neurometabolism across dementia subtypes.
