Augustin Ogier has been a postdoctoral fellow at the CHUV-UNIL Translational Magnetic Resonance Research Center since November 2021. He joined the Heart Magic project, headed by Ruud van Heeswijk, that aims to characterize heart failure with preserved ejection fraction.
His research activities are concentrated around computational anatomy and image processing applied to medical imaging, ranging from segmentation of soft structures to voxel-wise comparison of different imaging modalities at population-level in transversal and longitudinal studies to detect differences due to a specific pathology or treatment.
Augustin obtained a degree in General Engineering with a specialization in medical and health technologies at Institut Supérieur de l’Électronique et du Numérique (ISEN) Brest in 2016. He completed the last year of his program at the University of Sherbrooke, graduating with a Master’s degree in Applied Science, Computer, and Electrical Engineering. Starting in September 2017, Augustin conducted his Ph.D. thesis in computer science under the supervision of David Bendahan of the Center for Magnetic Resonance in Biology and Medicine (CRMBM) and Marc-Emmanuel Bellemare of the Computer Science and Systems Laboratory (LIS) in Marseille. His Ph.D. thesis focused on segmentation and characterization of deformations of soft tissue organs from MRI, with particular applications to neuromuscular disorders and 3D dynamic pelvic imaging. His work has notably led to the development of a supervised segmentation approach based on diffeomorphic image registration propagation methods.
