Congratulations, Mena Shenouda! PhD Spring 2024

Congratulations to Mena Shenouda (Armato Lab) who successfully defended his thesis on Monday, April 22, 2024.

His thesis is titled: “Implementation and Analysis of Artificial Intelligence for Pleural Mesothelioma on Computed Tomography Scans and COVID-19 on Chest Radiographs".

Mena joined the GPMP in the Autumn of 2019 after finishing his Bachelor of Science in Physics and Biophysics (honors thesis), and minoring in religion, from the University of Michigan. He was a PhD candidate in Dr. Sam Armato’s lab and worked on the implementation of deep learning on medical images. Specifically, he analyzed the performance of deep nets when segmenting mesothelioma on CT scans and classifying COVID-19 status on chest radiographs.

After completing 5 years in the GPMP, Dr. Shenouda will now attend the medical physics residency program at Yale University. Way to go!
