I am currently a post-doctoral research fellow in the Medical Image Processing Lab, a joint position between the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Institute of Bioengineering, and the University of Geneva's Faculty of Medicine, Radiology and Medical Informatics Department.
Prior to joining the group, I co-founded the information engineering consultancy PatternLab.
I obtained my Ph.D. in 2007 at EPFL in the LIDIAP laboratory, speech processing and biometrics group, part of the now-fragmented Signal Processing Institute. During my Ph.D. studies I was the recipient of an IEEE ICASSP best student paper award, and an ISMC best graduate student presentation award.
I earned my MPhil degree from the University of Cambridge, Engineering Department (Speech, Vision, and robotics group, now Machine Intelligence Laboratory) and Computer Laboratory, in 2002. Prior to that I obtained a BEng in electronic engineering with 1st class honours from the Electronic Systems Engineering department (now School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering) at the University of Essex.
Methodologically, I am interested in signal processing for discriminative feature extraction and feature selection, multivariate time series representation and processing, pattern recognition of multimodal data, probabilistic model structure learning with information-theoretic approaches, and multi-classifier methods. More specifically, I am concentrating on classification of a certain restricted class of graphs, and trying to find vector-space embeddings to this end.
In terms of applications, I am focusing on developing models and markers for pathological brains, especially for neurodegenerative diseases, from a variety of information sources (clinical and imaging).
I am fortunate to have met these very interesting researchers and to be working with them...
