My research is based in the area of Medical Image Analysis, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, focusing primarily on the role of computer systems to detect metastatic lymph nodes on staging imaging for colorectal cancer.

Current projects:

Artificial Intelligence

1) Artificial Intelligence applicability to cancer prognosis and prediction.

2) Artificial intelligence may help predict lymph node status on staging imaging for colorectal cancer

AI techniques for colon cancer diagnosis

Inflammatory Bowel Disease

3) What is the optimal treatment strategy considering efficacy, safety and cost-effectiveness (immunomodulators, biologics, surgery, combinations) in IBD management ?
