Introduction
I am a MD candidate at the University of Geneva working with Emmanuel Carrera (Hôpitaux Universitaires de Genève) and the MIP-lab headed by Prof. Dimitri Van De Ville (EPFL). My research centers on biomedical applications of machine learning, with a special focus on medical imaging in acute ischemic stroke.

Article
Motor conversion disorder (CD) entails genuine disturbances in the subjective experience of patients who maintain they are unable to perform a motor function, despite lack of apparent neurological damage. Abilities by which individuals assess their own capacities during performance in a task are called metacognitive, and distinctive impairment of s...
Article
Objective The auditory brain stem implant (ABI) is a neuroprosthesis placed on the surface of the cochlear nucleus (CN) to provide hearing sensations in children and adults who are not candidates for cochlear implantation. Contemporary ABI arrays are stiff and do not conform to the curved brain stem surface. Recent advancements in microfabrication...
Article
Physiological evidence suggests that neighboring brain regions have similar perfusion characteristics (vascular supply, collateral blood flow). It is largely unknown whether integrating perfusion CT (pCT) information from the area surrounding a given voxel (i.e. the receptive field (RF)) improves the prediction of infarction of this voxel. Based on...
Chapter
Perfusion CT is widely used in acute ischemic stroke to determine eligibility for acute treatment, by defining an ischemic core and penumbra. In this work, we propose a novel way of building on prior information for the automatic prediction and segmentation of stroke lesions. To this end, we reformulate the task to identify differences from a prior...

Acute mesenteric ischemia (AMI) is a severe condition associated with poor prognosis, ultimately leading to death due to multiorgan failure. Several mechanisms may lead to AMI, and non-occlusive mesenteric ischemia (NOMI) represents a particular form of AMI. NOMI is prevalent in intensive care units in critically ill patients. In NOMI management, p...
Article
Background Does the brain become more resilient after a first stroke to reduce the consequences of a new lesion? Although recurrent strokes are a major clinical issue, whether and how the brain prepares for a second attack is unknown. This is due to the difficulties to obtain an appropriate dataset of stroke patients with comparable lesions, imaged...
Article
Intermanual transfer of motor learning is a form of learning generalization that leads to behavioral advantages in various tasks of daily life. It might also be useful for rehabilitation of patients with unilateral motor deficits. Little is known about neural structures and cognitive processes that mediate intermanual transfer. Previous studies hav...
Article
The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has led to the study of a multitude of drugs to alleviate the epidemic burden. Among them, only corticotherapy (dexamethasone) and more recently concomitant anti-inflammatory therapy with IL-6 antagonists have shown benefit on mortality and mechanic ventilation requirement in patients requiring oxygen support. The management...

Article
Introduction: Imaging studies are used to guide patient selection for acute stroke treatment. Perfusion CT (pCT) is widely used to identify the acute ischemic core and penumbra, but the prediction of the final infarct remains challenging. With the advent of machine learning, algorithms learning the prediction of the final lesion from imaging data c...
Article
Introduction: Endovascular treatment (EVT) is the therapy of choice, in patients with unknown stroke onset (unwitnessed and wake-up strokes) and large vessel occlusion (LVO) with a favorable perfusion pattern. Whether bridging therapy (intravenous thrombolysis (IVT) and EVT) is superior to EVT alone remains unknown. Material and Methods: We retrosp...
