## ನಮಸ್ಕಾರ, नमस्ते, Hi there,

I’m a graduate student in the School of Computing Science at the Simon Fraser University (SFU), Burnaby. I work as a Research Assistant at the Medical Image Analysis Lab of SFU under the supervision of Prof. Ghassan Hamarneh. My research interests lie in the application of Computer Vision and Deep Learning for Medical Image Analysis.

I started my Masters (Thesis-based M.Sc.) in the Fall of 2019. Before joining SFU, I did my undergrad at the National Institute of Technology Karnataka in Electronics and Communication Engineering. I was fortunate to have interned at the University of Regina and Manipal Dot Net Pvt. Ltd. during this period.

## Publications

2. Deep Multimodal Guidance for Medical Image Classification

M Mallya, G Hamarneh
MICCAI 2022 (PDF, CODE, VIDEO, POSTER)

Leveraging the superior modality – that is usually harder to acquire – to guide the classification of the easily acquired modality using multimodal and student-teacher learning strategies. We are demonstrating the method on two datasets- RadPath (paired radiology and histopathology images) and Derm7pt (paired clinical and dermoscopic images).

1. Artifical Intelligence in Glioma Imaging: Challenges and Advances

W Jin, M Fatehi, K Abhishek, M Mallya, B Toyota, G Hamarneh
Journal of Neural Engineering, 2020 (PDF)
A review of the recent advances in the application of deep learning for brain tumor (glioma) analysis. The paper discusses the challenges involved in the process starting from data acquisition to the clinical deployment of the trained model. We further present the technical approaches currently used to overcome the discussed challenges.
