In my electrical engineering studies I started my activities
in image processing and intensivate these in my diploma thesis: „Conceptional
design for the development of electrical equipment for orientation
of the blind“. After my successful degree I aquired
a lot of experiences in imaging systems, especially in cardiological,
angiographic and conventional radiography.
For about 3 ½ years I have participated in a research
project funded by the German Israeli Foudation at the Max
Planck Institute for Human Cognition and Brain Sciences.
My work was primarly concerned with the development of a
new method for the intersubject registration of 3D anatomical
images of the human brain. This means to transform virtual
human brains into a common coordinate system and remove their
variability in order to make them more or less uniform.
In my position as software engineer I directly participate
on research projects and work on the developement , implementation,
maintenance and application of software systems for analysis
and manipulation of 3D virtual objects. Furthermore, supervising
a Computer Tomography (CT)/Digital Radiography (DR) system
as well as a Micro CT (µCT) for image aquisition (both
of them are/will be mobile); a virtual reality room for visualisation,
image reconstruction and manipulation; and a 3D printer to „convert
virtual reality to real virtuality“.
To a lesser extend, I also participate in general system
managment of the department and provide user support.
