Weiying Dai

Associate Professor

Computer Science


Weiying Dai received a BS in mathematics from Peking University and a PhD in computer science from University of Pittsburgh.

Before joining Binghamton University in 2015, she was an instructor at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School.

Her research interests include brain mapping, neuroimaging, blood flow imaging, biomedical image processing, pattern recognition, computer vision and information retrieval. She, together with her collaborators, invented and advanced a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) technique that has been implemented on GE MRI scanners and become a popular clinical imaging tool for quantitatively measuring blood flow as it moves through the body.

Dai is a selected Junior Fellow of the International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM). She has also twice received the Lawrie B. Morrison Research Award for Exemplary Contribution to Research in the Radiological Sciences in Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School.
