Andreas Leibetseder @ Florida Atlantic University

Within the scope of the AAU’s young Scientists Mentoring Programme, Andreas Leibetseder is visiting his mentor Oge Marques, Professor at the Department of Computer and Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and Florida Atlantic University (FAU) in Boca Raton, Florida. During his stay over the course of April, he intends to advance in his PhD studies by focusing on the sub-topic of region-based Endometriosis classification in laparoscopic media. He intends to approach this problem by adapting and applying deep learning technologies, profiting from the knowledge and insights of his mentor as well as other students of the local mlab research group (http://mlab.fau.edu/www/). Currently, several work packages have been defined, which include investigating lesion detection approaches on radiological image datasets for application in the endoscopic domain.
