Research Interests:

Before joining VascLab I worked for several projects related to Medical Engineering. I developed and evaluated different methods to realise radioactive phantoms for the testing of high-resolution positron-emission-tomographs. Furthermore, I developed a program to analyse 3-dim STL models from infants with cleft lip and palate to calculate the growth of the maxilla. As a student trainee in the R&D department of Sorin Group Germany I was involved in the design of devices for cardiac surgery.

Currently, I am working towards my Master’s Thesis investigating the retinal blood flow through computational modelling from fundus photographs.


Hobbies & Interests:

I enjoy getting outdoors and use the power of nature. I like windsurfing, SUP, playing tennis or travelling.
