I am Tewodros Tassew (Teddy), a software engineering graduate student at Northwestern Polytechnical University, China. My current research area includes applying detection and segmentation algorithms for the early diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease from MRI and DaT Scan images. At Aoxiang Innovation Center, I have worked on the development of a software that can detect regions of interest in medical images for tracking the progression of Parkinson's disease.

My research area includes applying deep learning techniques and computer vision for the early diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease from MRI and DaT Scan images. I am an avid learner and a generalist with quite a bit of experience in android development, python programming, OpenCV, and object detection. I am open to collaborating with individuals who are open to working on object detection problems in order to solve needs in the medical industry.
