Patrick Brandao

PhD cand.


I obtained my Integrated Master’s Degree in Biomedical Engineering from University of Minho, Portugal, in 2014. During the next year, I worked as a research engineer at University of Coimbra, where I developed methods capable of automatically detecting traffic incidents using real-time highway security videos. I am currently a PhD student at the Centre for Medical Image Computing (CMIC) in UCL. I have a funded position under the EndoVespa project, which aims at developing an integrated robotic platform for colonoscopy. My research will involve algorithms for recognition, motion estimation and localisation mapping within the body using cameras and potentially new designs for imaging systems. Special focus will be given to automatic colorectal polyp detection, possible through the use of new exciting deep learning strategies.
