I am a researcher with a focus on computational analysis of medical images using Bayesian modeling. I obtained my PhD degree from the medical image computing group in Leuven, Belgium, in 2001. After spending half a year as a visiting researcher at the Helsinki University of Technology, Finland, in 2001, I joined the staff of the Helsinki University Central Hospital , Finland, in 2002. Since 2007 I am a faculty member at the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, and since 2011 also at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science, Technical University of Denmark. Between 2007 and 2011 I was also a research scientist at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory.
I serve as an associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging, as a member of the editorial board of the Medical Image Analysis Journal, and as a reviewer for several international medical imaging journals and conferences. I am also a past associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Information Technology in Biomedicine (2002-2005).
