About me

I'm currently the head of the Medical Image Analysis group at the Institute for Surgical Technology and Biomechanics at the University of Bern, Switzerland. Before that I received my bachelor degree at the University of Santiago de Chile, Chile in 2001. My thesis Three-dimensional Reconstruction of a Human Embryo Hand Using Artificial Vision Techniques was awarded best Electrical Engineering bachelor thesis work. Later on, during 2002-2004, I conducted studies to obtain a Ph.D. degree in computer sciences from the University of Nice, France on the topic of lung cancer imaging and breathing compensation in emission tomography (more details here), under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Grégoire Malandain, Asclepios research project (formerly known as Epidaure).

In 2006 I joined the Medical Image Analysis group at the MEM Research Center as a postdoctoral fellow focusing on topics related to medical image analysis and statistical shape models for orthopaedic research. In 2008, I took over the lead of the Medical Image Analysis group at the Institute for Surgical Technology and Biomechanics, Switzerland.
