Dr. Joshua Stough looks to create and improve image analysis tools for use in medical imaging applications, computer vision, and the natural sciences. While his research focuses on the automatic segmentation of anatomical structures in medical images (such as the prostate in CT, or subcortical structures in brain MRI), this work is highly interdisciplinary and has applications to a broad range of fields, including biology and physics.


Dr. Stough teaches courses on image processing, graphics, computer vision, and artificial intelligence/machine learning.
