LUMS Professor Awarded Prestigious Charles Wallace Fellowship

Friday, July 12, 2019

Dr. Hassan Mohy-ud-Din, Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering, LUMS, has been awarded the 2019 Charles Wallace Fellowship by the British Council in Pakistan. The fellowship aims to enable mid-career academics to widen their professional knowledge, skills and international linkages.

Dr. Mohy-ud-Din established, and is the Director of, the Clinical and Translational Imaging Lab at the Syed Babar Ali School of Science and Engineering (SBASSE), LUMS. The lab was set up in 2018 with the help of a research grant of PKR 20 million from the Higher Education Commission and Planning Commission Pakistan. It is one of the 12 labs funded under the umbrella of Big Data and Cloud Computing in Pakistan. At present, two PhD students, a Masters student and two Research Assistants are working on various projects at the intersection of machine learning, optimisation theory, and medical imaging. Research areas focus on brain, cardiac, and whole-body imaging using multi-parametric, multimodality data.

Sharing his excitement at being given this amazing opportunity to diversify his research in computational radiopathomics, Dr. Mohy-ud-Din said, “I would like to use this opportunity to get hands-on experience on various modules of a computational imaging pipeline used for automatic and robust analysis and quantification of multimodal oncologic data. This will be followed by the development of a personal computational pipeline that my students at LUMS can build upon for radiopathomics in oncology.”
