Xavier Lladó Bardera

Xavier Lladó received the B.S. degree in Computer Science (1999) and the PhD in Computer Engineering (2004) from the University of Girona. From 2004 to 2006, he was working as a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in the Department of Computer Science at Queen Mary, University of London. In 2006 he moved to a Lecturer position in the Department of Computer Architecture and Technology of the University of Girona, where he is currently a Full Professor. He is also a member of the Computer Vision and Robotics (VICOROB) Institute, where he is leading the NeuroImage Computing grup. He is a senior member of the IEEE. He has published more than 280 papers in journals and conferences. He has supervised 14 PhD theses (2 of them receiving the best PhD award from the University of Girona). He is also cofounder and CSO of the spin-off Tensormedical of the University of Girona and Hospital Vall d’Hebron of Barcelona created in 2020.

Research interests

My main research interests are in the field of Image Processing, Pattern Recognition and Computer Vision, with especial focus on Medical Image Analysis and specifically on the Neuroimaging field, where I’m leading several research projects and participating in transferring the developed technologies. This reseach combines knowledge from computing, artificial intelligence and machine learning, with the development of novel computerised tools mainly based on deep learning models. As a result, he created pioneer models that allow to extract precise biomarkers from magnetic resonance and computed tomography images of the brain, helping in the diagnosis, assessment and follow-up of brain diseases. Current research tackles the goal of developing new tools to build predictive models for neurological diseases. This will help on the stratification of patients, the diagnosis and prognosis, and the inclusion of personalised treatments in hospitals.
