AI for medicine

The first CIS collaboration grant was approved by the CIS steering committee for the project entitled “Cardiac Digital Twins and Culprit Lesion Detection”. The laboratories of Prof. Abbé (SB/IC) and Prof. Frossard (STI) will be hosting the first CIS Collaboration grantee. The selected candidate will contribute to develop the CIS research pillar on “Intelligent Systems for medicine”, strengthen research activities in this general area and facilitate collaborations between CIS, medical experts and hospitals.


Dr. Dorina Thanou started working in November on the CIS collaboration grant on Intelligent systems for Healthcare, which primarily focuses on developing innovative AI solutions for cardiology.

Before joining the CIS, Dorina was a Senior Data Scientist at the Swiss Data Science Centre. She got her M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Communication Systems and Electrical Engineering respectively, both from EPFL, Switzerland, and her Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Patras, Greece. During her PhD studies, she conducted a research stay with Microsoft Research, Redmond, USA. 

Her research interests lie in the broader area of signal processing and machine learning and she is particularly interested in applying her expertise to intelligent systems for healthcare.
