Machine Learning in Neuroimaging

I am a permanent researcher working at NeuroSpin: a MRI neuroimaging center within the CEA (Commissariat à l'énergie atomique, Saclay, France). I am developing machine learning algorithms (classifiaction/regression) and multivariate/univariate statistics analysis tools. Those algorithms aim to provide computer-aided diagnosis/prognosis tools or biomarkers discovering methods for brain diseases. I am now integrating genetic (DNA array) together with neuroimaging. The specificity of such data is their large dimension which requires new specific feature extraction/selection and sparse and structured machine learning (convex optimisation) algorithms.

Scientific Computing

I am a core contributor of scientific computing libraries in Python:

  • Sparse and Structured Machine Learning in Python: pylearn-ParsimonY (will be public by the end of April)
  • Embarrassingly Parallel Array Computing: EPAC is a machine learning workflow builder.
