Mohsen Ghafoorian

I am a deep leaning R&D engineer working on HD map generation for autonomous driving at TomTom. Prior to this, I was a Ph.D. candidate at Radboud University, the Netherlands and I worked on the applications of deep learning techniques on neuro-image analysis (Oct. 2013 - June 2017). My Ph.D. project was in collaboration between the Machine Learning and the Diagnostic Image Analysis Groups and was under the supervision of Dr. Bram Platel, Prof. Elena Marchiori, Prof. Nico Karssemeijer and Prof. Tom Heskes.
