Research Interest

  • Artificial Medical Intelligence
  • Medical Image Computing
  • Biomedical Image Analysis
  • Data Science in Medicine


I am interested in collaborating with researchers, clinicians, and academics willing to solve unmet clinical needs by developing solid AI algorithms and those seeking to translate these methods to the clinical setting.

I am keen to hear from strong and passionate students interested in completing their master's project or PhD research with me, or postdoctoral researchers interested in being hosted at the ECS. 

Please get in touch!
