Dr Rena Elkin
Dr Rena Elkin has graduated from the Stony Brook University in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics. Her recent PhD research with Dr. Tannenbaum, in collaboration with Dr. Benveniste, focused on developing a numerical model of the glymphatic pathway based on a temporal sequence of MRIs. Her goal was to use a physically motivated technique for elastic image registration to derive the time evolution of the fluid implicitly contained in the deformation field between any two subsequent images. Currently, Rena is a postdoc in the Medical Physics Department at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
