Pedro Costa Klein MSc

Computer Scientist, Research Assistant

Research Focus

On the course of my Bachelor I had the opportunity to gain theoretical knowledge in many fields related to the Computer Science. In parallel, I gained practical experience in IT services and Development while working in the IT Department my university. Afterwards I enrolled in a Master in Computer Science, aiming my research to Image Processing applied to neuroimages. For my Master Thesis, I developed a method for automatic location and segmentation of Multiple Sclerosis lesions using FLAIR exams and probabilistic atlases. The work developed during my Master guided my research interests towards the neuroimaging field, thus leading me into joining a project for my PhD in Human Biology at the Ludwig-Maximilians Universität entitled “Computational modeling to investigate the role of structural network alterations on brain function in schizophrenia”, where the relationship between structural and functional connectivity and the impact of differences in the brain organization in schizophrenic patients is being investigated using of brain simulation models. My research interests include (but are not limited to) machine learning, brain simulation models, neuroimaging, neuroinformatics, image processing and computer vision.
