Joana is a member of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics and a Post-Doc in the Cambridge Image Analysis research group led by Dr Carola-Bibiane Schönlieb.

Her current research interests include image analysis, particularly segmentation and tracking, variational methods incorporating sparse regularisation techniques and imaging with applications in biomedicine, especially in cancer research. In collaboration with the Centre for Mathematical Imaging in Healthcare (CMIH), she is working on a project on computer-aided detection and personalised screening in breast imaging.
