Dr. Mayerich’s work focuses on high-performance computing and biomedical imaging. His research enables three-dimensional whole-organ phenotyping by developing methods to explore large biological samples at sub-micrometer resolution that will enable advances in disease research, diagnosis, and precision medicine.

Dr. Mayerich received his PhD at Texas A&M University, where he developed new microscopy techniques capable of fast sub-micrometer imaging of whole organs. As a postdoctoral fellow in the Beckman Institute at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, he conducted research on cancer diagnosis using vibrational images of tumor biopsies. He is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Houston, and the Co-Director of the BRAIN Center, the University’s first NSF IUCRC center focused on industry and university collaboration in neuroscience.
