Research interests

Luckily, I was early involved in sequence development at high fields (3 & 7 T) with the focus on multiparametric neuro- and breast (metabolic-) imaging. This includes the development and/or application of 1H-MR- and 31P-MR-spectrospopy, diffusion weighted imaging, dynamic contrast enhanced imaging in healthy volunteers and patients. Furthermore, I enjoy project management and supervision of PhD-students and Postdocs.
