About me

  • Rosaleena Mohanty is Assistant Professor in the Division of Clinical Geriatrics, Department of Neurobiology, Care Sciences and Society. Her training and background are in electrical engineering, with a focus on medical image processing. She received her PhD in 2019 from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and completed postdoctoral research in the Westman neuroimaging group at Karolinska Institutet during 2019-2023. 



    2019 – 2023: Postdoctoral researcher, Karolinska Institutet, Sweden
    2015 – 2019: PhD in Electrical Engineering, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA
    2013 – 2015: MS in Electrical Engineering, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA
    2009 – 2013: BS in Electronics and Communication Engineering, Institute of Technical Education and Research, India



    Rosaleena's research is supported by grants from Svenska Sällskapet för Medicinsk Forskning (SSMF), Center for Innovative Medicine (CIMED)-Junior, KI Fonden, Demensförbundet, Gun och Bertil Stohnes Stiftelse, Stiftelsen Lars Hiertas minne, Stiftelsen för Gamla Tjänarinnor.


  • Rosaleena's core research interests lie in characterization of the human brain structure and function based on neuroimaging and understanding the association with behavioral outcomes in various populations. Her primary research is focused on gaining understanding of heterogeneity of neurodegenerative diseases (Alzheimer’s, Parkinson's diseases) using multimodal brain imaging (MRI, PET) biomarkers.
