Research interests

I received my master’s degree in medical informatics from Vienna University of Technology in 2014 and my PhD in medical physics from Medical University of Vienna in 2018, respectively. Currently, I am enrolled as a postdoctoral associate at the Center for Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering at the Medical University of Vienna. My interests include optical imaging techniques, especially optical coherence tomography and its functional extensions, as well as image processing and pattern recognition particularly in life sciences.

Techniques, methods & infrastructure

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) and its (functional) extensions such as polarization sensitive OCT, or Doppler OCT/ OCT angiography in animal models. Furthermore: signal/image processing and analysis, pattern recognition and machine learning particularly in life sciences.
