Research Interests

As a postdoctoral researcher, I am involved with the image analysis projects of our group. My research focuses on improving computer-assisted diagnosis, intervention and therapy tasks using state-of-the-art computer vision, image processing and machine learning techniques.

Studies that took place during my time in the CAS group are listed below. For a complete overview, including work outside of the group, please have a look at my profile on Google Scholar.
