I am an assistant professor at the Medical Image Analysis group at Eindhoven University of Technology. Before this I was a postdoc at the Biomedical Imaging Group Rotterdam, Erasmus Medical Center. Before that, I was a PhD student at the Pattern Recognition Laboratory, Delft University of Technology, and a visiting PhD student at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Tuebingen, Germany.
My research focuses on machine learning in medical image analysis. Machine learning algorithms learn from examples in order to make predictions about novel data. For example, by learning from medical scans with annotated abnormalities, the algorithms can detect abnormalities in previously unseen patients. In particular I focus on scenarios where not enough annotated data is available, such as multiple instance learning, transfer learning and crowdsourcing. See my research/publications page for more details.
Another project is my blog, where I try to improve the experiences that others have in academia by sharing my own experiences as a PhD student, postdoc, and now faculty. Some popular posts are:
- My CV of Failure
- On getting a tenure track position
- How to print your poster on fabric
- Gift ideas for academics
- 7 things I wish I had done during my PhD
I also like trivia quizzes, beer and cats.

We won the Lorentz-eScience Competition with our proposal for the “Crowdsourcing for Medical Image Analysis” workshop. This is an initiative together with Lora Aroyo (VU), Alessandro Bozzon (Delft University of Technology), Danna Gurari (University of Texas at Austin) and Zoltán Szlavik (IBM Center for Advanced Studies Benelux).
