Defended PhD Students


1. Pierre Gueth, co-supervised with Philippe Delachartre, defended 2011.

Pierre worked with motion estimation in medical ultrasound. One of the aim of his thesis was to extract the motion direclty from the raw signals received by the single elements of the probe. He also develloped a Fourier domain image formation technique. After his defense he was recruited as a post-doctoral fellow at the Centre Leon Berard (Lyon France).

2. Marian Uhercik, co-supervised with Jan Kybic and Christian Cachard, defended 2011.

Marian worked with needle detection in 3D ultrasound. He developped and validated a RANSAC based algorithm. He has done his PhD in the frame of the WARTHE Marie Curie ITN. After his PhD he became a research engineer at AGFA Healthcare in Austria.

3. Bakary Diarra, co-supervised with Christian Cachard and Piero Tortoli, defended 2013.

Bakary worked with optimisation of 2D sparse array for 3D medical imaging. The originality of his technique was to propose a complete random positionning of the elements and an elegant optimization algorithm based on simulated annealing. For that purpose he collaborated with Marc Robini from CREATIS. After his defense he was enrolled as a post-doctoral assistant teacher at CREATIS.

4. Yue Zhao, co-supervised with Christian Cachard, defended 2014.

Yue worked with the developpement of a tracking method for biopsie needles in 3D ultrasound image sequences. Her technique is based on the RANSAC procedure of Marian which was further developped and includes a smart ROI choosing strategy and Kalman filtering. Yue is currently a post-doc at CREATIS.

5. Xinxin Guo, co-supervised with Denis Friboulet, defended 2014.

Xinxin worked with the developpment of a beamforming strategy to improve the "quality" of transverse oscillations images in sectorial geometry. Her beamformer design is based on backprogation.

6. Matteo Lenge, co-supervised with Piero Tortoli and Christian cachard, defended 2015.

Matteo worked with ultrafast blood flow techniques. He worked principally with phase based techniques adapted to plane wave imaging

7. Sébastien Salles, co-supervised with, Didier Vray, defended 2015.

Sébastien worked with different applications of transverse oscillations techniques. He proposed the combination of plane wave imaging and TO for arterial wall motion estimation. He also proposed one way to extend TO in 3D. As a visiting student in Montreal in the Rubic group Sébastien has interactions with Damien Garcia.

8. Oana Lorintiu, co-supervised with Denis Friboulet, defended 2015.

Oana worked with the application of Compressed sensing in medical ultrasound. Her main contributions concern the development of dictionnaries that enable extremely sparse representations of different kind of ultrasound signal. Olivier Bernard is also involved in Oana's supervision.

9. Emmanuel Roux, co-supervised with Christian Cachard and Piero Tortoli, defended 2016.

Emmanuel worked with the optimization of 2D sparse arrays for 3D ultrasound.
