Current Lab Members


Corey Baron, PhD

Dr. Corey Baron is a Scientist at the Robarts Research Institute, Assistant Professor of Medical Biophysics at Western University in London, Ontario, Canada, and the Canada Research Chair of Diffusion Magnetic Resonance Imaging. 

Assistant Professor, Medical Biophysics. Scientist, Robarts Research Institute. 


Nico Arezza, PhD

Nico's research involves the application of microscopic fractional anisotropy imaging to the study of neurological diseases and brain injury. He previously completed his PhD in Medical Biophysics (CAMPEP) at Western University, and his MSc at Toronto Metropolitan University (formerly Ryerson).

Postdoctoral Associate, Robarts Research Institute. Supervised by Dr. Corey Baron.


Naila Rahman

Naila's work involves developing non-invasive MRI acquisition and modelling approaches to enable in vivo tracking of microstructural changes in the brain, such as axon beading, density, and myelination (“microstructural MRI”). Through the use of microstructural MRI, she aims to develop imaging biomarkers for concussion diagnosis and prognosis. 

PhD Student, Medical Biophysics. Supervised by Dr. Corey Baron.


Paul Dubovan

Paul received an undergraduate degree from the University of Windsor in Medical Physics, where he developed an interest in medical imaging and experimental research. His project involves the application of real-time eddy current monitoring strategies to eliminate the artifacts created by advanced diffusion MRI techniques.

PhD Student, Medical Biophysics. Supervised by Dr. Corey Baron.

Farah Mushtaha

Farah is an MSc student in Medical Biophysics. Her previous work in the lab focused on developing and characterizing 3D printed Axon-Mimetic (3AM) phantoms for diffusion MRI validation.

MSc Student, Medical Biophysics. Co-supervised by Drs. Corey Baron and Ali Khan.


Jake Hamilton

Jake received his undergraduate degree in Life Sciences & Physics at Queen's University. His work involves using advanced diffusion MRI techniques to study microstructural changes in the brain following repeated concussion (or mild traumatic brain injury).

MSc Student, Medical Biophysics.

Co-supervised by Drs. Corey Baron and Arthur Brown.


Vinicius Campos

Vinicius is a visiting PhD student from Professor Marcelo Vieira's lab at the University of Sao Paulo (Brazil). His work is focused on statistical analysis of noise and development of frameworks to denoise MR images.

Visiting PhD Student, Medical Biophysics. 

Home institution: University of Sao Paulo


Mayuri Sothynathan

Mayuri received an undergraduate degree in electrical engineering from Western University where she developed an appreciation for biomedical engineering applications. Her work involves developing non-Cartesian acquisitions for diffusion MRI.

MSc Student, Medical Biophysics. 


Filipe Ledo

In June 2023, Filipe earned a bachelor's degree with honours in Specialized Biophysics from York University. While pursuing his undergraduate degree, he developed a deep admiration for medical imaging, with a particular fondness for MRI, and became increasingly interested in experimental research. He has entered the Ph.D. CAMPEP Medical Biophysics Program at Western University and his research efforts will focus on the application of spiral acquisitions and compressed sensing in fMRI.

MSc Student, Medical Biophysics. 

Co-supervised by Drs. Ravi Menon and Corey Baron.
