  • Hortense Kirisli was born in Chamonix-Mont-Blanc (France) on August 17, 1986.

    From 2003 to 2005, she made Preparatory Classes for entrance exams into French National Engineering Schools, in Annecy, France.
    In 2005, she started her studies in Electronics at the ENSEEIHT (National Polytechnic Institute of Engineering in Electro technology, Electronics, Computer Science, Hydraulics and Telecommunications), in Toulouse, France. She received an Engineering degree in Electronics / Signal & Image Processing in 2008.

    Since October 2008, she is a PhD student at the Biomedical Imaging Group Rotterdam (Departments of Medical Informatics and Radiology of the Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam, the Netherlands).

    She developed an automatic tool for four-chamber segmentation in cardiac CTA data.

    She is currently involved in the project Heart in 3D, which aim is to develop algorithms and software to connect various diagnostic information on heart function (i.e., the status of the coronary arteries, myocardial perfusion, ventricular function) from multi-modality imaging studies. This have led to the development and clinical evaluation of the so-called SMARTVis (Synchronized Multimodal heART Visualization) system.

    An article about the SMARTVis system was published on "AuntMinnieEurope.com".

    In addition, Hortense was one of the five members of the Erasmus MC team that won the 2011 Van Noordwijk Grant after participating to the "Battle of the Universities".
