Background Project Output

Abinash Pant hails from Kathmandu, Nepal, although he has lived and worked extensively in India over the last decade. He has completed his Bachelors of Technology from NIT Allahbad in India on receiving a scholarship from the Government of India. He followed it up with a Masters in Computer Vision from the Universite de Bourgogne in France. Apart from many other internship projects and experiences, his master’s thesis was in the field of Hippocampus Segmentation as an early bio marker for Alzheimer's disease at CSIRO, Australia wherein he focused on researching the state of the algorithms proposed in the literature for hippocampus segmentation and developing an automated pipeline for hippocampus segmentation using a database of manually segmented hippocampus for training. Currently he is a PhD research scholar at the Besa GmbH and University of Muenster on the topic “Developing automatic segmentation algorithms for MRIs of children”. Through this doctoral research, he hopes to work towards development of advance and robust segmentation algorithm which will eventually help us gain a better understanding of the neurocognitive disorders in children. His areas of interest include Machine Learning, Medical Imaging and Image Processing. In his free time, he enjoys reading, travelling and solving puzzles.
