Pejman Rasti

Ph.D., Image Processing, Machine Learning

Dr. Pejman Rasti received his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in image processing and machine learning at EMU, Cyprus, in (February) 2014, and the University of Tartu, Estonia (May) 2017 respectively. He has been working in the field of machine learning & image processing and is currently focusing in many research works related to the development of computer vision and machine learning algorithms for the purpose of characterization of plant growth. This includes segmentation, registration, classification, estimation ... with classical or machine learning based methods. He has been working as a post-doctoral researcher since July 2017 in Institut des sciences et techniques de l'ingénieur d'Angers (ISTIA) and is a member of the ImHorPhen research team.
