About

Dr. Ali is a clinical assistant professor in Engineering Science with a specialization in the field of biomedical engineering. Dr. Ali graduated in 2015 with a Ph.D. in electrical engineering at Laval University in Quebec City, Canada. Prior to joining Loyola University Chicago, Dr. Ali worked at Size Stream as a Scientist and software developer. Her main focus was to develop algorithms for the 3D modeling of human bodies.  She also had the opportunity to work at GE Healthcare where she developed software related to healthcare applications.

Research Interests

Designing software for medical device is very crucial in the field of healthcare. Dr. Ali is interested in investigating the recent technologies of processing medical images and designing software for medical devices. Her other interests are in computer vision, image processing and machine learning.
