Research areas & interests

Ongoing research interests are focused on system biology, especially cancer modelling and its personalized medical usage through tomographic imaging technologies like MRI, CT and MPI and other techniques, e.g. image analyses and image guidance in therapy.

The second research focus is computational electromagnetics, i.e. modelling and design of coils and fast calculation of near-field electromagnetic field applied to MRI and other modalities and therapy schemes with emphasis on quality and risk management, e.g. specific absorption rates (SAR) and temperature rises.

A third field of research activities is Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI) using ferromagnetic carbon which is a collaborative effort with the Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar), Brazil.
