ICCR Invited Speaker
After an initial formation in computer sciences at the University of Strasbourg, France, Mathieu Hatt received his PhD in medical image processing and analysis in 2008, and his habilitation to supervise research degree in 2012, both from the University of Brest, France.
M. Hatt has been a post-doc fellow in the LaTIM, INSERM UMR 1101 (Brest) between 2009 and 2012. He was a visiting fellow in 2011 at the Hammersmith Hospital (Imperial College London, UK), and a research fellow in 2011-2012 at the Stichting Maastricht Radiation Oncology (MAASTRO) in the Netherlands.
M. Hatt was recruited in 2012 by the French National Institute for Health and Medical Research (INSERM) as a junior research associate. He is currently carrying out research activities and projects related to multiparametric modelling in oncology applications relying on machine learning, radiomics and image processing of multimodal PET/CT and MRI images, supervising several PhD students and post-docs.
To date, M. Hatt has published more than 60 original papers in peer-reviewed journals, as well as letters to the editor, editorials and review papers.
In 2009, he received for his PhD on PET image segmentation the 1st prize for best biomedical research PhD in 2008 delivered by the French section of the IEEE. In 2014, he was further recognized with the Bruce H. Hasegawa Young Investigator Medical Imaging Science Award presented by IEEE NPSS and NMISC for his “contributions to the field of medical image analysis and processing for oncology imaging and radiotherapy applications”. He also received several awards from international scientific societies such as travel grants from the IEEE, 1 best-in-physics and 2 Science council session: the physics of cancer awards from the AAPM, and the Journal of applied clinical medical physics paper – medical imaging physics award.
He is a member of the following scientific societies: the IEEE, the NPSS, the SNMMI and the AAPM and the following scientific committees: the SNMMI physics, instrumentation and data sciences council, the IEEE NMISC, and the AAPM Taskgroup 211. He also serves as an associate editor for the Medical Physics, Journal of Nuclear Medicine and PLOS One journals and as a regular reviewer for numerous journals in the field of medical imaging.
