  • Machine Learning & Probabilistic Inference
  • Network Modeling of the Brain
  • Integration of Imaging, Genetics and Behavioral Data

Archana Venkataraman’s research lies at the intersection of multimodal integration, network modeling and clinical neuroscience. Her main objective is to combine analytical tools, such as probabilistic inference and network theory, with neuroscientific findings in order to characterize complex processes within the brain. Her methodology has yielded novel insights into autism, schizophrenia and epilepsy, with the long-term goal of informing patient treatment and care. Archana received her Bachelors, Masters and PhD in Electrical Engineering from MIT in 2006, 2007 and 2012 respectively. She was a postdoctoral associate at both MIT and Yale prior to arriving at Johns Hopkins. Archana is affiliated with the Malone Center for Engineering in Healthcare at JHU, which aims to improve the quality and efficacy of clinical interventions.
