Hi, I am Amelia, a third year Ph.D. candidate at the BCN MedTech group, under the supervision of Gemma Piella and Diana Mateus. My research interests are in the broad areas of medical imaging and deep learning.
I work on the design of data schedulers, i.e. a deep learning algorithm which determines the order and pace of instances presented to the optimizer, aiming to improve classification accuracy.
Specifically, I focus on curriculum-based strategies to develop data schedulers able to deal with label noise, limited amounts of data and class-imbalance, problems that are fairly common in medical datasets.
