Ayushi Sinha defends dissertation
Ayushi Sinha, a doctoral candidate in the Department of Computer Science and Malone Center for Engineering in Healthcare, successfully defended her dissertation, “Deformable registration using shape statistics with applications in sinus surgery,” on Thursday, March 22 in Malone Hall.
Her dissertation committee included her primary advisor Russell Taylor (John C. Malone Professor of Computer Science), co-advisor Greg Hager (Mandell Bellmore Professor of Computer Science), Masaru Ishii (Johns Hopkins School of Medicine), and Austin Reiter (Computer Science).
Sinha earned a bachelor’s degree in computer science and a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Providence College. She earned a master’s degree in computer science from Johns Hopkins University. During the course of her PhD, she worked on improving statistical shape models of anatomy and on using these models in deformable registration techniques. Starting the summer of 2018, Ayushi will continue at the Johns Hopkins University as a Provost Postdoctoral Fellow for one year. During this time, she plans to continue developing her ideas on segmentation, modeling and deformable registration to better understand variations in anatomical structures and to leverage this knowledge to provide better medical care to patients.
Congratulations to Dr. Sinha on her hard work!
