Assistant Professor, Emory University School of Medicine, Department of Pediatrics
Longchuan Li, PhD, received his doctorate in biomedical engineering from the University of Alabama at Birmingham in 2007. Upon his graduation, Dr. Li joined the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Emory University and Georgia Institute of Technology for his post-doctoral and research associate training, which focused on methods and applications of diffusion MRI and network theory.
Dr. Li has previously studied brain evolution, aging and abnormalities associated with prenatal alcohol exposure using advanced MRI techniques and graph theory. At Marcus Autism Center, Dr. Li codirects pediatric neuroimaging research. Currently, his research is centered on three areas: understanding spatio-temporal patterns of early brain development using MRI, network theory and statistical modeling; identifying imaging-based biomarkers of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in early infancy and adolescence; and developing state-of-the-art analytical tools to facilitate the study of complex brain developmental processes.
