Dr Nishant Ravikumar


Nishant Ravikumar is a Research Fellow at CISTIB, Centre for Computational Imaging and Simulation Technologies in Biomedicine, in the School of Computing and Medicine, University of Leeds. He completed his PhD in 2017 at the University of Sheffield. Following this, he spent two years as a postdoctoral researcher at the Pattern Recognition Lab, Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany, before joining the University of Leeds in 2019. His past research projects have focused on developing machine learning algorithms for medical image analysis. These have included: development of shape registration and shape analysis tools for computer-aided-diagnosis (CAD); analysis of the variation in structural integrity and diffusion-related properties within the brain and its links to dementia; multi-scale and multi-modal image analysis for breast cancer detection & diagnosis; and quantification of cardiac functional indices for population-wide analyses and CAD. His current research interests are in developing algorithms that aid in the effective integration of multi-modal imaging and non-imaging data, for improved biomarker discovery, diagnosis, disease monitoring and patient prognosis.
