Polina Golland is a Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT. Her research interests span computer vision and machine learning. Her current work focuses on developing statistical analysis methods for characterization of biological processes using images (from MRI to microscopy) as a source of information. She received BSc and Masters in Computer Science from Technion, Israel in 1993 and 1995, and a PhD in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT in 2001. She joined the faculty in 2003.

Polina’s primary research interest is in developing novel techniques for biomedical image analysis and understanding. She particularly enjoys working on algorithms that either explore the geometry of the world and the imaging process in a new way or improve image-based inference through statistical modeling of the image data. She is interested in shape modeling and representation, predictive modeling, and visualization of statistical models.
Polina’s current research focuses on developing statistical analysis methods for characterization of biological processes using images as a source of information. In this domain, she is interested in modeling biological shape and function, how they relate to each other and vary across individuals.
