Modern medicine has made incredible progress in the last 100 years. The development of technology to support medical personnel has contributed to this in particular. It is my wish to do research on data-driven medical technology of tomorrow and to support modern medicine with my contribution.
I am a research scientist at Philips Research in Hamburg working on machine learning algorithms for clinical applications in CT and MRI. Before that, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Medical Technology and Intelligent Systems at Hamburg University of Technology and my main research interest was Bayesian inference for uncertainty-aware medical image analysis with deep learning. During my PhD studies at Leibniz University Hannover, I have been working on calibration methods to obtain well-calibrated uncertainties from deep Bayesian models in medical imaging applications. I have experience in working with many modalities, including X-ray, CT, MRI, ultrasound, OCT, and (stereo) endoscopy.
