Ana Ineyda L. Namburete

DPhil (PhD) Candidate             

Ana Ineyda L. Namburete

Ana I. L. Namburete graduated from Simon Fraser University (Vancouver, Canada) with a BASc. (Hons.) degree in Biomedical engineering. She joined the BioMedIA Laboratory in October 2011, working under the supervision of Professor J. Alison Noble. Her current focus is on machine learning techniques to predict gestational age and neurodevelopmental maturation from 3D fetal ultrasound images of the brain.
