My name is Pablo Mesejo Santiago and I am Associate Professor at the Department of Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence (DECSAI) of the University of Granada (UGR, Spain). The main topic of my research is the analysis and design of machine learning, computer vision and computational intelligence methods able to solve image analysis problems, mainly related to the biomedical domain. During my career I have tackled numerous challenging problems, e.g. the automatic segmentation of anatomical structures in biomedical images (PhD at University of Parma, Italy, performed as a Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher, 2010-13), the classification of gastrointestinal lesions from endoscopic videos (postdoc at University of Auvergne, France, in a research lab belonging to CNRS, 2013-14), the estimation of biophysical parameters from fMRI signals (postdoc at Inria, France, 2014-16), and the integration of deep learning into probabilistic generative models for visual and audio recognition in human-robot interaction (starting researcher position at Inria, 2016-18). I joined the UGR in April 2018 as a Marie Curie Experienced Researcher. It is worth mentioning that Marie Curie Standard Individual Fellowships are highly competitive research grants that present a 13.10% success rate (in the H2020-MSCA-IF-2016 call). In turn, the UGR is one of the top institutions in computer science and engineering (ranked 1st in Spain and 101-150 in the world according to the Academic Ranking of World Universities 2021). My Marie Curie proposal (Skeleton-ID) specifically dealt with the application of soft computing and computer vision techniques for the comparison of radiographs in forensic human identification. I am co-founding partner and chief AI officer of Panacea Cooperative Research (a newly-created SME, and UGR spin-off, focused on finding intelligent solutions to solve unmet biomedical needs). I am also vice-chair of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (CIS) Task Force on Evolutionary Computer Vision and Image Processing (chair from 2018 to 2021), member of the IEEE CIS Task Force on Evolutionary Deep Learning and Applications, Associate Member of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences (AAFS, Digital and Multimedia Sciences Section), and member of the Andalusian Research Institute on Data Science and Computational Intelligence (DaSCI).
