Alexandra Degeest

I am a Pakistani national and have an engineering background with signal processing (Machine Learning) as a main research interest. I did my master’s project at the Medical Image Processing Lab at EPFL, Switzerland where the topic of my thesis was « Advanced Machine Learning tools to uncover characteristics of dynamic functional brain connectivity ». My phd topic here is Deep Learning for automatic segmentation of medical images with applications in the Oncology.
