I am currently a PhD student at the University of Glasgow in the Computer Vision & Graphics group under the supervision of Dr. Paul Siebert and Prof. Mark Girolami. My current research concerns morphological shape analysis in 3D models and range images. We mainly use data acquired from stereo-photogrammetric systems. In my PhD, I am focusing on data coming from live capturing of human beings, more specifically female chest data, foot data and, adults and children's face data.
I started working on measurement techniques for 3D model assessment during my MSc in Advanced Computing Science at the University of Glasgow, which I completed in 2006. The MSc work was conducted in collaboration with Prof. Ashraf Ayoub and Dr. Balvinder Khambay. The outcome was a software tool for assessing breast volume on 3D chest models for pre- and post surgery breast cancer patients.
Previous to moving to Glasgow I have been working at the University catholique de Louvain
(UCL) in the
Communications and Remote Sensing Laboratory
under the guidance of
Prof. Benoit Macq. My work there was based on
developing software tools for tumour segmentation on MRI, PetScan and CT for the
MERCATOR project. These tools are
plug-ins for the
MedicalStudio platform. For this platform, I have also developped
a plug-in visualization of EEG signals as my final year undergraduate project.
Breast Cancer is one of the most frequent
forms of cancer in the UK. It often involves
for malign tissue removal in the chest area. Some of the surgeries can be so invasive that the patient is going to choose to have
breast reconstructive surgery. It is important in these cases that the outcome results on equally sized breasts. In order to
improve the planning of the surgery and assess objectively the outcome stereo-photogrammetry was chosen as an non-invasive imaging
method. Stereo-photogrammetric imaging allows an accurate digital 3D reconstruction of the entire chest area.
I am interested in robotic vision, shape assessment and recognition,
shape based retrieval.
