I'm 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 models for the segmentation, tracking and quantitative analysis of bioimages. My research interests include approximation and spline theory, image processing, computer vision, machine learning and life sciences.
I currently work in Prof. Michael Unser's Biomedical Imaging Group. There, I share my time between theoretical research on continuous representations for image analysis, collaborative projects with biologists and software development. I currently serve as an associate member in the Bio Imaging and Signal Processing Technical Committee of IEEE Signal Processing Society.
In September 2018, I will start a Bioimage Analysis group at the EMBL-EBI in Hinxton, UK. Stay tuned for PhD and post-doc openings!
Apart from scientific stuff, my mind is full of drawings of strange animals, novels and various types of music. Sometimes, I also climb on big rocks.

I think and explain better when I doodle. Below are some illustrations of this tendency.
