Interests: Predictive Big Data analytics Data science with biomedical and healthcare applications Health and neuroscience informatics Teaching with technology and blended instruction Mathematical modeling and statistical computing Dr. Dinov is the Director of the Statistics Online Computational Resource (SOCR) and is an expert in mathematical modeling, statistical analysis, high-throughput computational processing and scientific visualization of large datasets (Big Data). His applied research is focused on neuroscience, nursing informatics, multimodal biomedical image analysis, and distributed genomics computing. Examples of specific brain research projects Dr. Dinov is involved in include longitudinal morphometric studies of development (e.g., Autism, Schizophrenia), maturation (e.g., depression, pain) and aging (e.g., Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease). He also studies the intricate relations between genetic traits (e.g., SNPs), clinical phenotypes (e.g., disease, behavioral and psychological test) and subject demographics (e.g., race, gender, age) in variety of brain and heart related disorders. Dr. Dinov is developing, validating and disseminating novel technology-enhanced pedagogical approaches for science education and active learning.
