Celina graduated from Brown University with a B.S. in biomedical engineering and is currently a second-year medical student at the Warren Alpert Medical School. Her project involves using deep learning to predict cancer treatment response following embolization procedures.




Undergraduate Students

Purkayastha, Subhanik

Subhanik is a junior at Brown studying Computational Biology. He is originally from the great city of Philadelphia, PA. His academic and intellectual interests lie in the intersection between health and computer science. He is very interested in introducing aspects of technology and computation to issues surrounding human health. In the lab, He is developing a radiomics-based machine learning pipeline to predict various health indications from MR images. He hopes one day such technology can seamlessly integrate itself into the clinical workflow and boost the performance of our clinicians in diagnosing, characterizing, and treating all forms of cancer.


Kim, Chris

Chris graduated from Brown University in 2020 with a Bachelor of Arts in Computer Science. He is currently deferring medical school to acquire experience in management consulting but plans to matriculate into the Warren Alpert School of Medicine in 2022. His current projects in the lab are focused on developing deep learning models to diagnose COVID-19 from chest X-ray images and to estimate brain tumor sizes from MRI scans. Chris is also interested in healthcare automation, such as telemedicine and AI-assisted diagnostics, as well as its implementation in modern clinical systems through healthcare entrepreneurship.


Centintemel, Ugur

He is the professor and Chair of Computer Science. He received his undergraduate and masters degrees in Turkey and then came to University of Maryland for his doctoral studies. He joined Brown right after He completed my PhD in 2001. His work strives to facilitate the management and analysis of data under challenging situations, for example, when there is lots of data or scarce computing resources. For the last few years, he has worked on tools and systems that can quickly process and analyze high-rate data streams. He is now moving on towards supporting big data and self-managing systems. He likes to teach classes that draw on principles and mechanisms from several sub-areas of computer science, such as databases, distributed systems and networking. For the last three years, he has also enjoyed teaching a freshman class on introduction to computer science.

Kimia, Benjamin

He is the professor of Engineering. He received his BA, MA and PHD degrees in McGill University. Vision has emerged as an exciting and interdisciplinary area of investigation. Professor Kimia’s research in vision is mainly concerned with the problem of recovery, representation, and recognition of two and three-dimensional shape from real images. Professor Kimia’s research interests are in the areas of computer vision, image processing, medical imaging, perception, and psychophysics. A focus of his program is the problem of object recognition from shape.
