Guilherme Aresta received his M.Sc. degree in Bioengineering – Biomedical engineering from the Faculty of Engineering of University of Porto, Porto, Portugal in 2016. He later pursued his Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the same faculty, having focused on the development of deep learning approaches for medical image analysis and especially lung cancer screening. He collaborated as a researcher with the Biomedical Imaging Laboratory, Center for Biomedical Engineering Research (C-BER) of the Institute for Systems and Computer Engineering, Technology and Science (INESC-TEC) since 2014. Since 2021 he has joined the Christian Doppler Laboratory for Artificial Intelligence in Retina as a postdoc researcher.

Research Interests:

His research interests are related to the study of machine learning, deep learning and computer vision techniques for medical image analysis and computer-aided diagnosis.
