About me

I am a CNRS researcher at the Brain and Spine Institute (ICM), in the ARAMIS Lab (Paris). I first joined the ARAMIS Lab as a postodoctoral researcher in 2017, after having been awarded a PRESTIGE incoming mobility co-financing grant, with the aim to develop computational imaging tools to improve the understanding and diagnosis of dementia. I did my PhD at University College London (UCL) in the Translational Imaging Group, part of the Centre for Medical Image Computing (CMIC), under the supervision of Prof. Sébastien Ourselin. The main focus of my PhD has been to develop image synthesis algorithms for MR-based attenuation correction in hybrid PET/MR scanners, and for detecting pathological abnormalities in the reconstructed PET data. At the end of my PhD in 2016, I received funding from the CMIC-EPSRC Platform Grant to explore a new field of research. During this one-year postdoc  at UCL I decided to tackle the problem of automatic MR-based radiotherapy treatment planning in the pelvic region by developing a new framework combining segmentation and image synthesis.
