Antonio Reyes Porras PhD

Assistant Professor
  • Department of Biostatistics & Informatics

Antonio received two BSc degrees in the fields of computer science and engineering from the University of Cordoba, Spain, in 2006 and 2008. In 2010, he obtained an MSc in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Barcelona, after an internship at the Chalmers School of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden. Once he completed his MSc, Antonio moved back to Barcelona to obtain scientific training at the Center for Imaging and Simulation Technologies in Biomedicine in the Pompeu Fabra University. One year later, he enrolled in the PhD program of the Department of Information and Communication Technologies funded by the Spanish Government through a competitive grant aimed at training future university professors. During that time, Antonio received training on cardiac ultrasound imaging in collaboration with the Clinical Hospital of Barcelona, which he complemented in 2014 with an internship at the Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium. In 2015, he graduated summa cum laude and moved to the Children’s National Hospital in Washington, DC, as a postdoctoral research fellow. Since then, Antonio has been working on the development of innovative medical imaging, statistical modeling and machine learning methods to improve the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of diseases with focus on pediatric conditions. In summer 2020, Antonio joined the Department of Biostatistics & Informatics of the Colorado School of Public Health.
