About Joshua Stough

Joshua Stough is an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Bucknell University. He teaches systems courses (Organization, Operating Systems, Architecture) as well as an elective in Image Processing with Machine Learning.

In research, Dr. Stough leverages machine learning and high-performance computing to help automate medical image analysis. Examples include planning prostate radiation treatment in computed tomography (CT), and analyzing sub-cortical brain structures in magnetic resonance and diffusion tensor imaging (MR-DTI). Recently his group, including talented Bucknell students, has worked on quantifying heart structure and function in cardiac MR and echocardiography, in partnership with the regional Geisinger Health hospital system. The group is focused on the development of machine learning and image processing techniques to advance precision medicine in the study of cardiovascular disease.
