Roman Hossein Khonsari

Team leader

Roman is a consultant maxillofacial surgeon at Necker - Enfants Malades Hospital in the departmet of Pr. Arnaud Picard, and professor of surgery at the Medical School of University of Paris. He is an alumni of the Ecole normale supérieure (E/S 98), graduated from Université Pierre-et-Marie-Curie and was trained as a surgeon in Nantes in the former department of Pr. Jean Delaire. He obtained a PhD in craniofacial development from King's College London under the supervision of Pr. Paul Sharpe. He is specialized in the surgical management of craniofacial malformations and works with Dr Eric Arnaud, one of the pioneers of this field. Roman is also medical director of the Health Data Hub, the central French medical database, and visiting professor in mechanical engineering at University College London, where he works with Pr. Mehran Moazen on craniofacial growth modeling.

Maxime Taverne

Post-doctoral fellow

Maxime works on the growth of the cranio-cervical junction and builds anatomical models of this anatomical region. He received his PhD at the Muséum national d'histoire naturelle in Paris where he worked on the biomechanics of the skull and lower jaw. Maxime's work will considerably improve the management of children with syndromic craniosynostoses. Maxime is funded by the Mairie de Paris - dispositif Emergence(s).

Giovanna Paternoster

Clinical associate

Giovanna is a consultant pediatric neurosurgeon at Necker - Enfants Malades Hospital. She was trained in Rome in the prestigious department of Pr. Concezio di Rocco. Giovanna is specialized in the management of children with craniosynostosis and has special interests in hydrocephalus and cranio-cervical joint anomalies.

Quentin Hennocq

PhD student

Quentin is a maxillofacial surgeon currently involved in a 3-year PhD program under the supervision of Mr Khonsari and Nicolas Garcelon, head data manager at Imagine Institute. Quentin works on AI-based methods to assess craniofacial malformations on 2D pictures from the very large clinical photography database of Necker - Enfants Malades Hospital. He works in close collaboration with the AIDY project (Dr Marlène Rio, Department of Medical Genetics). Quentin is funded by the CRI - Centre de Recherches Interdisciplinaires.

Maya Geoffroy

PhD student

Maya is a mechanical engineer from EPF. She is currently a PhD student co-supervised by Mr Khonsari and Pr. Sébastien Laporte, head of the Institut de Biomécanique Humaine Georges Charpak at Arts et Métiers ParisTech. Maya's Phd is funded by the Parisian start-up BONE 3D, where she works with mechanical engineer Pierre-Marc François. Maya develops various skull growth models of single-suture craniosynostoses, and develops AI-based approaches for bone segmentation on MRI images. The work of Maya will ultimately lead to the development of automated methods of surgical planning in craniofacial surgery, and more precisely in forehead remodeling.

Anne Morice

PhD student

Anne is a assistant professor in the maxillofacial surgery unit of Necker - Enfants Malades Hospital where she focuses on cleft repair. She is currently a PhD student under the co-supervision of Mr Khonsari and Laurence Legeai-Mallet, PI at Imagine Institute. Anne works on bone regeneration in mouse models with FGFR mutations and uses geometric morphometric tools to assess mandibular shape. The first results of her PhD have recently been published in Bone.

Marine Cheval

MSc student

Marine is a maxillofacial surgeon from Toulouse University Hospital. She is currently involved in an MSc project exploring the morphogenesis of the external ear cartilage using mouse synchrotron microtomography and transparentized human embryos. She works with Alain Chédotal at Institut de la Vision in Paris and Abigail Tucker from King's College London. Marine is funded by a joint grant Université de Paris / King's College London.
