I am a teacher in the technical field of Communication Systems and a researcher in medical image processing.

For a span of eight years, I served as the manager of the apprenticeship program within the Telecommunications department.
Additionally, I held a three-year responsibility for managing the internship program for students in their fourth and fifth years of engineering studies.

I am back in research with a strong desire to contribute to the advancement of deep learning in brain imaging, particularly in segmentation and the identification of physiological markers.
