Background and activities
Being educated as a Medical Engineer, my ambition is to conduct research on the cutting edge of medical physics and clinical practice. I have experience with medical image reconstruction, quantitative imaging, multimodal imaging, machine learning, and radiation dosimetry in oncology. My current research focus lies on prostate cancer imaging with PET and MRI, and the emerging role of artificial intelligence in this field.
