Prior-based Coregistration and Cosegmentation
MICCAI Daily: Thursday
I met Mahsa and Enzo during MICCAI, and they told me about their stories
and work. Mahsa Shakeri is an Iranian PhD student, who is currently
finishing her PhD at Polytechnique Montreal in Canada. Enzo Ferrante is
Argentinian, and he is a postdoctoral research associate at the Biomedical
Image Analysis group of Imperial College London. He is also finishing a
master on sociology of science. They met a year ago in Paris at the Center
for Visual Computing (CVC) of CentraleSupelec, where they started a
project that was published this year in MICCAI.
Their work is a nice example of how collaboration works in the scientific
world. On the one hand, Mahsa had experience on brain image
segmentation techniques, and during the last year she was particularly
interested in multi-atlas segmentation. On the other hand, Enzo had been
working during the last 4 years in the domains of probabilistic graphical
models and discrete optimization, focusing on medical image registration.
