Constantine Butakoff (Kostantyn Butakov) is Professor Lector with the Department of Information and Communication Technologies at Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) in Barcelona, Spain, where he works in the biomedical research area. Constantine received master’s degree in mathematics from State University of Uzhgorod, Ukraine, in 1999 and Ph.D. degree in Biomedical Engineering from I3A, Universidad de Zaragoza, Spain, in 2009.
Constantine's research is focused on shape modeling and parameterization with applications in biomedicine. He is also interested in the application of computational geometry methods (surface and volume prametrization, transformations between the parametrizations) to characterize the cardiac geometry and establish correspondences between the shapes or populations of shapes (with and without variation in topology). Establishing correspondence is a considerable problem in cardiac data analysis since the different regional measurements on the surface and within the myocardium tend to have various parameterizations (viability and geometry in MRI, electrical properties in electrophysiological studies, deformation in echocardiography and tag-MRI, etc).
