Research Group Leader at the EMBL-EBI, Cambridge, UK

I am a life scientist fond of image data who fell in love with computers and mathematics. I hold a MSc in Bioengineering and a PhD in Electrical Engineering, with a focus on applied maths for image processing.

My work focuses on the development of continuous representations to quantify, describe, and model objects in bioimages. My research interests include approximation and information theory, image processing, computer vision, machine learning, and life sciences.

I am leading a Bioimage Analysis research group at the EMBL-EBI in Cambridge, UK. We are interdisciplinary, doing theoretical research on approximation theory, engaging in collaborative projects with biologists, and developing image analysis software tools. We have internship opportunities in the team for enthusiastic researchers with an electrical engineering, applied maths or computer science backgound. If you like blending maths and computer vision and enjoy beautiful bioimages, drop me an e-mail!

I currently serve my second term as an associate member in the Bio Imaging and Signal Processing Technical Committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society.

If you don't find me in the lab, I am most likely either climbing or doing something bird-related.
