Research Interests

My fields of interest are shortly summarized below. You can visit my project page to get a more specific idea on what I am currently working on.

Image segmentation techniques

  • MRI image preprocessing: biasfield correction, registration, intensity normalization
  • Machine learning: Expectation-Maximization, Random Forests
  • Statistical modeling: Bayesian inference, Maximum Likelihood Estimators, MAP problems

Fig1. - Axial, sagital and coronal views of segmented flair hyperintensities acquired from a patient suffering from vanishing white matter disease. Segmentation was calculated based on histogram fitting: a gaussian was used to fit grey and white matter voxels and a frechet distribution (an extreme value distribution) was used to fit the hyperintensities.

Brain tumor growth modeling

  • Temporal graphical models
  • Markov random fields
  • Energy minimization
  • Uncertainty estimation

Patient-specific characterization of Glioblastoma Multiforma

  • Precision medicine:
    Personalized glioma modeling has become necessary due to intertumoral cellular and molecular heterogeneity
  • Radiogenomics:
    Investigating the relation between genetic profiles and MRI phenotypes
