Biography

I joined Janelia in 2016 to develop computational methods for the automated analysis of fly brain imagery. 

My work is focused on leveraging prior knowledge about the shape of objects of interest for the automated analysis of biomedical image data. As a PhD student at the Zuse-Institute Berlin and the University of Luebeck, Germany, I studied shape models for the automated segmentation of organs in clinical CT and MRI data. Afterwards I was an ELBE postdoc in Gene Myers’s lab at the MPI-CBG in Dresden, where I developed combinatorial and machine learning approaches that exploit shape priors for bioimage segmentation. 

At Janelia my focus is on leveraging prior knowledge about the anatomy of neurons, with the goal of identifying individual neurons with known shapes in EM and light microscopic image data.
