While at AIMS, Baurice’s research was about using machine learning techniques for medical imaging to detect and classify the fourth stage of diabetic retinopathy. His project aimed to address the various challenges ophthalmologists face when diagnosing the disease, including the time-consuming manual processing of fundus photographs of the retina. Ultimately, the goal was to contribute to developing a more accurate and efficient solution for the right patient, helping doctors diagnose the disease more quickly and effectively.
Baurice is currently a master’s student in Data Science and Scientific Computing at the University of Trieste, Italy. His area of specialization is data science application in healthcare. He also won a merit scholarship to sponsor his master’s degree.
