Yet another PhD student.

My name is Amith (meaning ‘infinite’ in Sanskrit) and I enjoy investigating problems in image analysis and building tools to solve them. I like mathematics as applied to gain a better understanding of what we see (naturally, or otherwise).

I am currently a doctoral student with Prof. Mauricio Reyes in the Medical Image Analysis lab, at the ARTORG Center, learning more about pixel-level segmentation using Deep Learning models and its’ robustness in clinical settings as applied to radiotherapy planning. Earlier, I learnt vision and robotics at Georgia Tech remotely, and wrote a masters’ dissertation at Minnesota, focusing on reducing MRI acquisition times while maintaining accurate orientation measurement of white matter fibers in our brains.

Along the way, I wrote code for image/vision at the MathWorks, built technical content for undergraduate courses, ran interactive workshops/seminars across India, all in the broad areas of computer science, biomedical engineering, and mathematics.

Here is a more detailed CV. I am grateful to call Bern, Bengaluru, Boston, Minneapolis, and Mangalore as home at various points in time.
