Research Area: Biomedical optics with a focus on optical coherence tomography (OCT) and ocular imaging
During my PhD work in the fields of applied mathematics and astronomical adaptive optics, I have acquired expertise in numerical algorithms and optimization, physical modeling and parallel programming with GPUs. In my current position as Post Doc at the Medical University of Vienna, I have the exciting opportunity to apply my knowledge to OCT retinal imaging and gain experience in medical engineering and experimental physics.
