Research work and affiliations

I am currently working at Prof. Michael Friebe's Chair for Catheter Technologies and Image Guided Therapies at the Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg (OvGU) where I am part of the INKA project team which is funded by the BMBF. I am currently managing two industry research projects in the field of medical devices tracking (FFG project funded by the Austrian government in cooperation with PIUR imaging GmbH) and in the field of thermal imaging (ZIM project funded by the German BMWi in cooperation with the GBN Systems GmbH). 

From 2009 to 2015 I was working at Prof. Georg Rose's Chair for Healthcare Telematic and Medical Engineering. I successfully applied for a AiF/ZIM joint research collaboration project which was funded by the BMWi and I was responsible for managing and running the project for almost 2 years (2013-2015). Since 2011 I also have a collaboration with the group of Dr. Julien Oster and Dr. Gari Clifford from the University of Oxford. I obtained me Dr.-Ing. (PhD) degree in 2015 from the OvGU in the field of biomedical signal processing. The thesis tackled the problem of ECG signal acquisition and processing during MRI exams for applications in gating and patient monitoring. If you are interested in this topic, you can download my PhD thesis here

From 2009 to 2013 I was part of the INKA project group where I was working on technologies for catheter visualisation for interventional MRI as well as on safety issues during MRI.

I received my diploma degree (Dipl.-Ing.) from the Dresden University of Technology (TU Dresden) in 2009 in electronics, communications and signal processing.
