  • 101 Introduction to Computers and Applications


M.S. and Ph.D. in Biology
University of Hamburg


My research interest is in the field of Imaging Sciences and centers on development of tools for enhancing robotic pattern recognition, and diagnostic medical imaging, as well as on definition of artificial-intelligence systems. Technical imaging as well as physiological imaging provides the challenge to design automated algorithms that complement, match or surpass human capabilities.
