Welcome! I am a researcher with an eye (or two) on imaging.
My current work involves evaluating the image and video quality of medical imaging devices. I'm interested in vision science, technology assessment, and image processing.

I am a PhD candidate in the Image Processing and Interpretation (IPI) group (an imec research group), TELIN department at Ghent University in Belgium. As of May 2020, I also work as a Coordinator/Finance Specialist at imec.

Research summary

My research currently focuses on evaluating video quality for clinical applications such as interventional x-ray imaging and laparoscopic surgery. I have also contributed to image quality assessment of a breast tomosynthesis display, a 3D medical display, digital pathology imaging, color in broadcast television, consumer media, and image processing algorithms in manufacturing.

This work has greatly benefited from collaborations with other researchers, especially medical experts. In our studies, we evaluated diagnostic performance, task-based peformance, and subjective quality preferences. We also studied to what extent these measures were correlated and whether the participant's level of expertise affected performance and perception. I have also developed an algorithm to measure the quality of interventional X-ray sequences using a signal detection approach.
