Benjamin Gutierrez Becker


About me.

I am a Postdoctoral Research. I have previously done my PhD studies at the Chair of Computer Aided Procedures under the supervision of Nassir Navab. My main research topics are focused on the application of Machine Learning techniques for the analysis and processing of medical images.

Research Interests.

  • Machine Learning for Medical Image Processing
  • Reinforcement Learning applied to Dataset Optimization
  • Statistical Shape Modelling
  • Age Estimation from MR images


  • Student Travel Award MICCAI 2016
  • Young Investigator Award MICCAI 2016
  • Student Travel Award MICCAI 2017
