Mr. Hongwei Li (Bran)


  • Email: hongwei(dot)li@tum.de ;
  • Office: In open space of IMETUM close to the printing room (lots of drones in my desk).

My English name is Bran. I am a Ph.D. candidate supervised by Prof. Bjoern Menze starting from Sep. 2017.
My research interests focus on devoloping machine-learning algorithms in the field of medical image analysis,
especially in weakly-supervised learning and multi-view learning for image segmentation.

My program includes several projects:

  • Automatic segmentation of white matter hyperintensities (WMH) and multiple sclerosis (MS) lesions in MR images;
  • Automated algorithms for classification of pancreas cysts using multi-modal computed tomography (CT);
  • Brain structures segmentation including Claustrum in brain MR images;
For more details about my research, please have a look at my Curriculum Vitae, Google scholar profile and GitHub.

Available Projects for Undergraduates and Master Students

I enjoy working with self-motivated students who are interested in machine learning and medical image analysis.
Please feel free to contact me and Prof. Bjoern Menze if you want to do research on relevant topics, especially:

1. Weakly-supervised learning / one-shot learning in medical image analysis.
2. Deep learning's application on segmentation of lesion in MR images and lesion subtype classification using CT images.
