Dr Fani Deligianni

  • Lecturer (Computing Science)

Biography

Dr Fani Deligianni’s holds a PhD in Medical Image Computing (Imperial College London), an MSc in Advanced Computing (Imperial College London), an MSc in Neuroscience (University College London) and a MEng (equivalent) in Electrical and Computer Engineering (Aristotle University, Greece).

Her PhD work was on augmenting 3D reconstructed models of the bronchial tree with 2D video images acquired during bronchoscopy. Bronchial deformation was modeled based on Active Shape Models (ASM) and a predictive tracking algorithm was incorporated to improve tracking of the endoscopic camera.

She was awarded an MRC Special Research Training Fellowship in Biomedical Informatics to explore links between structural connectivity as it is measured with Diffusion Weighted Imaging (DWI) and functional brain connectivity captured with resting-state (rs)-fMRI. She was based at the Biomedical Image Analysis group in Computing Department of Imperial College London. Her research work suggests a prediction framework to study the link between structural brain connectivity and functional brain connectivity. 

She developed sophisticate computational approaches in machine learning, statistics and network analysis for the investigation of human brain structure and function. She applied her approach in functional data derived from simultaneous resting-state EEG-fMRI and microstructural indices obtained from neurite orientation dispersion and density imaging of the human brain. In particular, she uses graph theory, machine learning and statistics to describe and characterise complex interconnections between multi-modal brain networks. 

Recently, her work has been focused on workload assesment based on neurophysiological signals. She has also done work on human motion analysis with wearable sensors and single rgb(d) camera.
