Research Interests

Visual data excites me, and I am slowly turning into a data scientist now. I started in pure mathematics and spent BSc, MSc, and the first few years of my PhD learning hard-core Analysis, Topology, and Geometry - 1999 to 2009. Now in the past decade, I have spent a lot of time in learning image processing, computer vision, and machine learning techniques - 2009 to 2019. My current primary research areas are in biomedical imaging and data informatics with a strong emphasize in pediatrics - 2020 to ?. For more details about my work, please have a look at my publications list or research page.
