Ninon Burgos

Short bio

Ninon Burgos is a CNRS researcher at the Paris Brain Institute, in the ARAMIS Lab. She completed her PhD at University College London, UK. In 2019 she received the ERCIM Cor Baayen Young Researcher Award, which is awarded each year to a promising young researcher in computer science or applied mathematics. Her research currently focuses on the development of computational imaging tools to improve the understanding and diagnosis of neurological diseases.

Topics of interest

Medical imaging, computer-aided diagnosis, machine learning

Project in Prairie

Ninon Burgos will focus on the individual analysis of medical images to improve differential diagnosis and strengthen personalised medicine. This project will involve developing advanced computational representations of multimodal imaging data and building flexible decision support systems. The framework will be applied to brain images to assist in the diagnosis of neurological diseases.


Neuroimaging offers an unmatched description of the brain, which explains
its crucial role in the understanding and diagnosis of neurological disorders. There is a critical need to develop new methods that can improve the characterisation of each patient’s pathology, and to build decision support systems more sensitive and easier to interpret.
