She is involved in an interdisciplinary project between the department of Nano Anatomy (UMCG) and the Information Systems group (Bernoulli Institute). She is investigating deep-learning based approaches for the automatic segmentation of tissue structures in very large images generated by high-end electron microscopes. Her other promotors are Prof. Ben Giepmans (UMCG) and Prof. Dimka Karastoyanova.
  2. Guru Swaroop BennabhaktulaGuru Swaroop Bennabhaktula. His studies are partially funded from the EU project 4NSEEK “Forensic Against Sexual Exploitation of Children” through the financing program Internal Security Fund – Police, ISFP-2017-AG-CYBER. He is exploring how machine learning and computer vision techniques can be used for source camera identification from digital images based on sensor pattern noise and image metadata. His other promotors are Prof. Enrique Alegre (University of Leon) and Prof. Dimka Karastoyanova (University of Groningen).
  3. Xueyi WangXueyi Wang His PhD studies are supported by the China Research Council (CRC). He is investigating how IoT and pattern recognition can be used to design autonomous health monitoring systems. His other promotor is Prof. Dimka Karastoyanova (University of Groningen).
  4. Chenyu ShiChenyu Shi. He is investigating computer vision approaches for the development of a computer-aided diagnosis system for the detection and classification of blistering (skin) diseases. His work is in collaboration with the University Medical Centre of Groningen (UMCG). His other promotor is Prof. Nicolai Petkov (University of Groningen).
