Background & Position
I received my PhD degree in 2000 in Medical Imaging from the University of Lyon, France. My dissertation topic was on the automatic labelling of the coronary arteries in X-ray angiography and based on a 3D topological model. Then, I worked as Research Follow on the segmentation of focal brain lesions at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig, Germany.
In 2005 I joined ICCAS as researcher. My research focuses on the development of segmentation and registration tools for the computer assisted surgery.
My research areas focus on the development of tools for the processing and analysis of intraoperative ultrasound (US) imaging in neurosurgery. I implemented a semi-automatic segmentation method for the extraction of blood vessels for the evaluation of 3D intraoperative US angiography with the application of an US contrast agent. Currently, I am working on a national project in close collaboration with the neurosurgery department of the university hospital of Leipzig for the evaluation of intraoperative 3D enhanced US imaging for tumor resection.
