Research interests

My research is primarily focused on understanding the connection between (epi)genetic tumor subtypes and their destinct functional imaging phenotypes by contextualizing information gained from liquid biopsies and PET/CT. The aim is to elucidate the methodologic strengths and limitations of single and combined use of these methods in assessing tumor biology, predicting therapy responses and outcomes.

Techniques, methods & infrastructure

positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT), liquid biopsies, radiomics, machine learning
