Short Bio

Dr. Tie is an Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery at Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School. Dr. Tie received her Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering and M.S. in Electrical Engineering from Louisiana Tech University. Dr. Tie's research focuses on improving brain mapping for surgical planning and guidance by developing multi-modal neuroimaging techniques, focusing on functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and diffusion MRI. She has developed easy-to-perform resting-state and movie-watching fMRI paradigms for the patients who cannot perform regular task-based fMRI due to language or other neurological deficits. Dr. Tie is also interested in applying brain connectivity to understand the neural mechanism of disease pathophysiology and develop biomarkers for neurological disorders. The goals are to inform therapeutic development and improve patients’ overall well-being.
