Daniel Barbosa received the M.Sc. degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Minho and a double PhD degree from KU Leuven and INSA Lyon. His main research focus is biomedical signal and image processing and is currently developing automated strategies to quantify cardiac morphology and function from four-dimensional echocardiographic and MRI data. His other research interests include wavelet analysis and computer-aided diagnosis.
