Research Focus
My research interest is motivated by the tremendous potential impact of making Deep Learning-based computer vision applicable in everyday settings in clinical and pre-clinical research. This entails developing deep convolutional networks for detection, localization, and segmentation tasks in medical images of various modalities. Ensuring applicability in everyday settings typically requires elaborate strategies to deal with limited availability of annotated data, for instance making use of Transfer Learning or Data Augmentation.
I cooperate with Ali Ertürk's Lab at the Institute for Stroke and Dementia Research at Klinikum Großhadern. This work comprises research questions like automatic image segmentation and classification problems for general 3D anatomy, but also specific questions in the fields of stroke, dementia, and cancer.

Projects for students

We are inviting applications for several exciting research opportunities for Master students with our group. Please also feel free to reach out if you are interested in a Bachelor thesis, research project, etc. The projects are intended for students in Informatics, Electrical Engineering, or related fields. Please refer to the project descriptions below for more detailed information.

We expect all students to have:
  • Prior theoretical knowledge on deep learning
  • Some practical experience with deep learning (PyTorch or TensorFlow)
  • Good Python coding skills
  • Ideally experience in computer vision / medical image analysis
