SUKNO, FEDERICO MATEO
Federico Sukno is a Ramón y Cajal Fellow at UPF. He received the degree in electrical engineering at La Plata National University (Argentina, 2000) and the Ph.D. degree in biomedical engineering at Zaragoza University (Spain, 2008). His research activity has been framed in the field of image analysis with statistical models of shape and appearance, targeting diverse applications, most of which in facial biometrics and, to a lesser extent, cardiac imaging. Between 2007 and 2010 he led a team of 6 members (the section on Statistical Image Analysis, within the CISTIB research group at UPF). Between 2010 and 2013 he worked as a post-doctoral researcher with a joint appointment at Dublin City University and the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. In this post, his research focused on the analysis of three-dimensional facial dysmorphology with applications into neuropsychiatric disorders from developmental origin and reconstructive surgery. He has been previously awarded a Marie Curie Intra-European Fellowship from FP7 (December 2011) and a research fellow position at UPF (UPFellow program, 2013).
