Machine Learning and Optimization in (Bio-)Medical Imaging

Dr. Hassan Mohy-ud-Din
SBASSE 10-201
Dr. Hassan will talk about quantitative multimodality imaging which forms the current and future paradigm in clinical and translational imaging. He will discuss applications of machine learning, deep learning, optimization, and statistics in clinical and translational imaging. This will illuminate a brand-new area of scientific research and scholarship which is so far dormant within the student community in Pakistan despite being an immensely rich field for over five decades. Dr. Hassan, will also demonstrate the inevitable need of electrical and computer engineers and applied mathematicians to actively work in this area of research and present opportunities in my lab to work on cutting-edge research in (bio-)medical imaging.

Dr. Hassan Mohy-ud-Din is the Director of Clinical and Translational Imaging lab and an Assistant Professor at the LUMS School of Science and Engineering. He completed his PhD and MSE in Electrical and Computer Engineering and MA in Applied Mathematics and Statistics from Johns Hopkins University (2009 – 2015). From 2015 – 2017 he was a postdoctoral associate in the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at the Yale School of Medicine. From 2017 – 2018 he was a Clinical Research Scientist at Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre. His research lies at the intersection of Applied Mathematics and Medical Imaging. His work on dynamic cardiac PET imaging won the 2014 SNMMI Bradley-Alavi fellowship and the 2014 SIAM student award. He is also a recipient of 2019 Charles Wallace Fellowship from the British Council, Pakistan. His work on non-invasive biomarker quantification for coronary microcirculation was featured as a news story in Medical Physics followed by a dedicated review article from Stanford. He also serves as a reviewer on major scientific journals (Clinical Cancer Research, Neuro-oncology Advances, Medical Image Analysis, Neuroimage, Physics in Medicine and Biology, Medical Physics, IEEE Transactions on Image Processing to name a few) and is a member of IEEE and SIAM societies. He also carries a university teaching experience of over 14 years (UET Lahore, SBASSE LUMS, and Johns Hopkins University).
