Edouard Duchesnay - Data Science, Neuroimaging


Machine Learning, Neuroimaging, Scientific computing, Software Engineering, Bioinformatics, High Dimensional Data. Machine Learning in Neuroimaging


I am a research scientist at NeuroSpin/CEA, Paris-Saclay (map): a MRI neuroimaging center within the CEA (Commissariat à l’énergie atomique, Saclay, France). I am developing machine learning algorithms (classification/regression) and multivariate/univariate statistics analysis tools. Those algorithms aim to provide computer-aided diagnosis/prognosis tools or biomarkers discovering methods for brain diseases. I am now integrating genetic (DNA array) together with neuroimaging. The specificity of such data is their large dimension which requires new specific feature extraction/selection and sparse and structured machine learning (convex optimisation) algorithms.

Scientific Computing

I am a core contributor of ParsimonY a Machine Learning library in Python dedicated to high dimensionnal structured input data such as brain images (MRI, PET) or genetics data (DNA, RNA).
