Research interests

My main research focus lies on finding new ways to computationally model and predict dynamic processes in space and over time, especially in the field of fetal and paediatric brain development, functional brain networks and plasticity, bone lesion prediction in multiple myeloma and in the field of automatic MRD assessment in childhood leukaemia.

Techniques, methods & infrastructure

  • Diffeomorphic registration
  • Machine learning and statistical pattern analysis
  • Spatio temporal modelling and anomaly prediction
  • Computer vision
  • High resolution reconstruction and motion correction
