Michal Depa


I am currently on leave from MIT working on my startup, Jana Care, that aims to deliver low-cost diagnostics and disease management to the developing world.

Until Fall 2011, I was graduate student in the Medical Vision Group at MIT CSAIL. I was advised by Prof. Polina Golland. I worked on algorithms for medical image analysis, more specifically for segmentation of anatomical structures and lesions in cardiac magnetic resonance images.

I completed my undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering at McGill University. While there, I spent some time working as a research assistant in the Photonic Systems Group.
