MICCAI 2013 Awards

A big congratulation to Oliver Zettinig who won the prestigious MICCAI Young Scientist Award for the paper “Towards patient-specific models of cardiac electrophysiology thanks to a clever personalization of a concise model from clinical ECG measurements”!

Congratulation also to Ozan Oktay, who also got the honorable mention for his paper “Biomechanically Driven Registration of Pre- to Intra- Operative 3D Images for Laparoscopic Surgery”.

Great job!



I am currently leading the Image-Guided Therapy research group at the Medical Imaging Technologies department led by Dorin Comaniciu, Siemens Healthineers, Princeton, NJ (U.S.A). My research area covers medical image analysis (segmentation and registration), computational physiology, in particular cardiac modeling, and artificial intelligence for image analytics and interventional systems.

With the team, we won the R&D 100 award for Siemens eSie Valves, recognized among the top 100 innovative products of 2015. We also won the NJ Thomas Alva Edison Patent Award the same year for our work on personalized simulation of mitral valve interventions. Our research also led to two MICCAI Young Scientists Awards in 2011 and 2013.

I graduated in 2010 from INRIA Sophia Antipolis, Asclepios research team, France.
