My main research interests are related to quantitative analysis of medical imaging and the integration of prior knowledge in this process. My research is focus (but not limited) to:
- Segmentation (Variational framework, Active Contours, Graph theory),
- Statistical classification (Bayesian framework, Hidden Markov Random Fields)
- Image registration and Atlas
- applied to different medical image modalities like Magnetic Resonance (MR) and Diffusion MR imaging, Ultrasound imaging and Computed Tomography.
Meritxell Bach Cuadra received her degree in Telecommunication Engineering (ETSETB) from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), Spain, in September 1999. In December 1999, she joined the Computer Vision and Image Analysis Group at the Signal Processing Laboratory (LTS5) as a Ph.D. student under the supervision of Prof. Jean-Philippe Thiran. She obtained her PhD degree in November 2003 for her work "Atlas-based Segmentation and Classification of Magnetic Resonance Brain Images."
In June 2005 she joined the Signal Processing Core (SPC) of the Biomedical Imaging Center (CIBM) as responsible of the SPC-CHUV Unit at the Radiology Department of the Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV). As head of the SPC-CHUV unit her goal is to coordinate the medical image analysis research at LTS5 with the needs of expertise in signal/image processing of physicians and researchers at CHUV.
In March 2011 Meritxell is promoted to Senior Lecturer (Maître d’Enseignement et de Recherche) at the School of Biology and Medicine of the University of Lausanne where she will teach and develop independent researches at the interface between medical Imaging and image analysis. To this end, she has created the Medical Image Analysis Laboratory (MIAL) within the Radiology Department of the Lausanne University Hospital. She is currently affiliated to both the Radiology Department of the CHUV and to the Signal Processing Laboratory 5 of the EPFL.
