Eranga Ukwatta named BME Centennial Postdoctoral Fellow
Eranga Ukwatta of the Institute for Computational Medicine has been awarded the Johns Hopkins University Biomedical Engineering Centennial Postdoctoral Fellowship. The BME Fellowship is intended for rising stars who are recent or soon-to-be PhD graduates with a record of achievement, a strong desire for scientific discovery, and aspirations for societal impact.
Eranga joined the team of ICM core faculty members Natalia Trayanova and Fijoy Vadakkumpadan in late 2013. He is working to develop clinically applicable image processing methodologies for the generation of computational models of the heart, particularly in patients with structural disease, such as myocardial infarction. His research will address challenges such as segmentation of cardiac and torso images, and interpolation of infarct geometry.
Congratulations, Eranga, and good luck with your research!
