Hortense KIRISLI

Hortense Kirişli comes from Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, France.

From 2003 to 2005, she made Preparatory Classes for entrance exams into French National Engineering Schools, in Annecy, France.  After what, in 2005, she started her studies in Electronics at the ENSEEIHT (National Polytechnic Institute of Engineering in Electro technology, Electronics, Computer Science, Hydraulics and Telecommunications), in Toulouse, France. She received an Engineering degree in Electronics / Signal & Image Processing in September 2008.

From October 2008 to March 2013, she was a PhD student at the Biomedical Imaging Group Rotterdam, the Netherlands, at the departments of Medical Informatics and Radiology of the Erasmus Medical Center. She was involved in the cardiovascular image processing theme group, focusing on “CTA Quantification And Multi-modal Visualization for Assessing Coronary Artery Disease”. She was part of the “Heart In 3D” project, which aim was to develop algorithms and software to connect various diagnostic information on heart function (i.e. the status of the coronary arteries, myocardial perfusion, and ventricular function) from multi-modality imaging studies. This has led to the development and clinical evaluation of the so-called SMARTVis (Synchronized Multimodal heART Visualization) system. She also organized a cardiovascular “Grand Challenge” on coronary artery stenoses detection / quantification and lumen segmentation (http://coronary.bigr.nl/stenoses/). She defended her PhD thesis on June 14th 2013 at the Erasmus University Rotterdam.

Since July 2013, she joined AQUILAB for 18 months, as an Experienced Researcher for the SUMMER project. Her main role is to manage the integration process of the different partners’ contributions, in order to develop the mid-term and final prototypes.
