Dr. Andreia Faria earned M.D. degree, residence in Radiology, and Ph.D. degree in Neurosciences from the State University of Campinas, Brazil. Subsequently, she joined the faculty there as a Professor of Radiology. Dr. Faria completed her post-doctoral research in Radiology at the Johns Hopkins University and accepted a position as a Research Associate and then as an Assistant Professor. In 2018, Dr. Faria became an Associate Professor of Radiology in the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.
Dr. Faria is a neuroscientist with unique expertise in neuroradiology, physics, and computational analysis. She works on technology development and translational research. Dr. Faria work focus on techniques for imaging post-processing, quantification, and multimodal MRI analysis. Dr. Faria applies these techniques to study normal brain development, neurodegenerative disorders, to create artificial intelligence models to characterize MRI patterns, and to access relationship between brain damage and functional deficits.
Dr. Faria has published more than 80 journal articles, one book, holds two patents, and is an investigator in several projects funded by the National Institutes of Health and other research institutes.
