Kivanc Kose - kkose

I am a post-doctoral researcher @ Dermatology Service, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. I received my PhD degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Bilkent University, Ankara, Turkey. With a background in signal and image processing, I joined Optical Imaging Group at MSKCC in December’12.

My research interests include:

  • Developing machine learning methods for automated analysis
  • Creating new image representations for diagnosis
  • Enhancing the imaging quality through denoising and artifact cleaning

I am currently focused on developing image analysis tools for reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) and fluorescence confocal microscopy (FCM) images of skin to aid clinicians in performing image interpretation in a rapid and quantitative way to guide diagnosis. Confocal microscopy is capable of imaging skin lesions (to 100-150 um depth) in-vivo with cellular resolution comparable to that of pathology.

You can find a list of my publication below in my CV. Some of my publications can be accessed from the articles page of this website. I am also serving as an associate editor for the Signal Image and Video Processing Journal (SIVP).
