Background and activities

I joined the MR cancer group in 2011 as a PhD student in Medical Technology. After defending my thesis “Multi-modal Imaging of Tumour Vasculature and Treatment Response in Preclinical Cancer Models.” in 2015, I stayed in the group and am now working as a Postdoctoral researcher.

My research focuses on using medical imaging techniques to better understand the characteristics of cancer and tumour vascularisation and to characterize the effects of tumour treatment.
I have mainly used multi-parametric Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) as a tool for non-invasive cancer detection and treatment monitoring. Among those methods are dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE) MRI, diffusion weighted (DW) MRI and susceptibility contrast MRI. Apart from MRI am also using other imaging modalities such as high resolution micro-CT and histology, that can complement or support the MRI data. 

I received my Master’s degree in Medical Physics from the Martin-Luther University in Halle (Saale), Germany. I performed the research for my Master’s thesis at the Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD, USA. The thesis was titled “Multi-scale imaging of Angiogenesis in a Breast Cancer Model”.
