Background and activities

I am a pediatrician, currently pursuing a PhD in medicine. I am working to develop a smartphone based screening tool for neonatal jaundice - Picterus.

Neonatal jaundice results in more than 100.000 deaths every year, and in addition a large group of newborns grow up with permanent brain damage as cerebral palsy, or sensory defects as deafness. This condition could have easily been treated, if only detected in time. 

The goal of my project is to develop a novel tool for neonatal jaundice that is easy to use, reliable and comes at a low price.
