Babak Ehteshami Bejnordi

I am a research scientist at Qualcomm AI Research (Staff Engineer and Manager) working on Deep Learning in Computer Vision, Conditional Computation, Continual Learning, and Generative Modeling. I am currently working with Prof. Max Welling on conditional computation.

I obtained my PhD under the supervision of Prof. Nico Karssemeijer and Dr. Jeroen van der laak at the Diagnostic Image Analysis Group, Radboud University, the Netherlands. I worked on the development of machine learning algorithms for detection and characterization of breast cancer in histopathology images.

From Jun to Nov 2016, I was a visiting researcher at BeckLab, Harvard Medical School and worked on developing deep learning techniques for analysis of breast cancer stroma in pathology images.
