Olivier Gevaert, PhD

Stanford University

Neuveo Scientific Advisory Board

Dr. Olivier Gevaert is an assistant professor at Stanford University focusing on developing machine-learning methods for biomedical decision support from multi-scale biomedical data. He is an electrical engineer by training with additional training in artificial intelligence, and a PhD in bioinformatics at the University of Leuven, Belgium. He continued his work as a postdoc in radiology at Stanford and started his lab at the Department of Medicine, Biomedical Informatics. His lab focuses on multi-scale biomedical data fusion primarily in oncology and neuroscience.

Professor Gevaert's lab draws upon machine learning methods such as Bayesian methods, kernel methods and regularized regression to integrate molecular data or omics such as (epi)genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, etc. Moreover, the lab also investigates strategies to couple these omics data with phenotypes at cellular and tissue scales using pathological imaging and medical imaging data (e.g. MRI, PET, CT, ...) in the context of computational pathology, imaging genomics & radiogenomics.
