Bio:

My research interests fall into the following topics: Computer vision, 3D reconstruction and Optical projection tomography, Steganography, Medical image analysis, Quantitative imaging bio-markers, Pattern localisation and recognition, Characterization and validation of imaging bio-markers, Evaluation of the association between image-based phenotypes and genomic biomarkers, Algorithms for the computer-guided analysis of multi-dimensional microscopy-data sets, Computational support for tissue- related target/ biomarker discovery, development and analysis, and machine learning applications. At Blekinge Institute of Technology (BTH), I hold a permanent position at the level of Associate Professor in computer science. Research wise, I am participating in a large research project, “Scalable resource-efficient systems for bigdata analytics,” where close research collaboration with industry (SONY Mobile, ArkivDigital AB, GKN Aerospace Sweden AB, etc.) is key for the project execution. More specifically, I am leading research theme B: Big data analytics for image processing. The research profile, combines existing expertise in machine learning, data mining, and computer engineering to create new knowledge in the area of scalable resource-efficient systems for big data analytics. Prior to this, I held research positions at Karolinska Institute (worked on risk prediction of breast cancer for 4 years), and at Umeå Centre for Molecular Medicine, Umeå University (worked on diabetic research for 2 years). I am a senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). My publications comprise, 2 granted patents, 1 invited book chapters, 1 Book, 24 peer reviewed journal papers, and 32 conference papers. Some of the award that I obtain are:
• Best paper award at the 8th International Conference on Information Technology and Telecommunication (2008), awarded by IET (The Institution of Engineering and Technology). Galway, GMIT, Ireland on 24-October-2008
• Best paper award at the 8th International Conference on Information Technology and Telecommunication (2008), awarded by IET (The Institution of Engineering and Technology). Galway, GMIT, Ireland on 24-October-2008
• 25K Award for New Entrepreneurs (best project in the high-tech category)
• Best PhD thesis award of the Faculty of Computing and Engineering (2009).  The award was in the form of a trophy and £300.
