Research Programs



I have received my masters in Medical Engineering from Eindhoven University of Technology in 2012 and PhD in Medical Imaging (with a focus on diffusion MRI) in 2016 at the UMCU. Since then, I have been working at CUBRIC, Cardiff University in the UK on extracting new information from multi-contrast MRI experiments with the ultra-strong gradient Connectom MRI scanner. I am interested in optimising different aspects of the preprocessing and analysis pipeline, as  well as applying differential geometric methods to diffusion MRI data. My work at the Image Sciences Institute focuses on optimising MRI experiment design for MRI scanners with clinical gradient systems.
