Assistant Professor

About Me

I obtained my PhD in 2017 at Utrecht University (UMC Utrecht) with a thesis entitled Machine learning based analysis of cardiovascular images. After postdocs in the quantitative image analysis group at UMC Utrecht and Amsterdam UMC, I started as an assistant professor in the Mathematics of Imaging & AI (MIA) group in Twente in March 2020. My research interests are in machine learning for medical image analysis, in particular generative models and geometric deep learning approaches.  

I have received a VENI from NWO TTW (2020) to work on Machine learning-based prediction of abdominal aortic aneurysm growth and rupture.
