Research Assistant Professor, Biostatistics, School of Public Health

Dr. Masotti develops statistical methods for data derived from medical imaging processes. This data presents unique challenges such as spatial and temporal autocorrelation and high dimensionality.

Dr. Masotti developed a 3D boundary detection algorithm for discovering prostate cancer lesions non-invasively via multi-parametric MRI. This image displays the different theoretical tumor volumes in blue and the estimated boundary surface in red.
