Hasselt University & Maastricht University | Sep 2020 - Present

PhD Researcher

Led and contributed to a series of innovative projects at the intersection of medical imaging, data science, and machine learning, with significant implications for healthcare analytics and patient care. Some of the main tasks performed during the PhD included: • Multi-Centric Study Management: Directed a groundbreaking evoked potential study across Flanders' Multiple Sclerosis centres, enhancing data harmonisation and preprocessing protocols to integrate diverse datasets from multiple sources effectively. • Data Integration & ETL Development: In collaboration with an SME, engineered a sophisticated ETL pipeline using Python to transform heterogeneous clinical data into a standardised OMOP CDM format, significantly improving data usability for analytical purposes. This initiative culminated in a well-received workshop at the AI4Imaging course, attended by AI professionals from both academia and industry globally. • Advanced Imaging Techniques: Pioneered a super-resolution reconstruction pipeline in partnership with UAntwerpen's vision lab, IMEC, and ICOMETRIX. This project transformed low-quality MRI data into high-definition images suitable for detailed analysis, leveraging state-of-the-art machine learning techniques. • Data Harmonization: Developed and applied an innovative extension to the COMBAT algorithm, addressing variability in MRI data due to differences in magnetic fields and temporal factors across datasets from Belgium and the Netherlands. • Predictive Modeling: Utilized high-dimensional features extracted from MRI images and evoked potential time series to build complex machine learning and deep learning models. These models successfully predicted disability progression in MS patients, showcasing the potential of AI in personalised medicine. • Flanders AI Research Program Leadership: Spearheaded Proof-of-Concept 3 within the MS use case, demonstrating exceptional project management and cross-disciplinary collaboration skills. • Data Anonymization and Publication: Played a crucial role in the COVID-19 in MS Global Data Sharing Initiative, implementing data anonymisation techniques and contributing to an open-source dataset that supported a publication in Nature. • Innovative Segmentation Techniques: Collaborated with Maastricht University Hospital (MUMC+) to implement a cutting-edge segmentation pipeline for Diabetes MRI analysis, utilising NN-Unet and Pyspark, setting a new standard in medical imaging analysis. • Academic Contributions and Mentorship: Actively engaged in grant writing for Horizon Europe, presented at numerous international conferences, and mentored five senior master's students, underscoring my commitment to academic excellence and leadership in the scientific community.
