received the diploma and a PhD degree (Dr.-Ing.) in computer science
from the University of Bielefeld, Germany,in 2001 and 2004,
He joined the Applied Computer Science group in 2001 and worked towards his PhD within the bioinformatics graduate program(Graduiertenkolleg
'Bioinformatik') until 2004. From 2004 until 2006 he worked as a
post-doctoral researcher in the BMBF project ALPIC . From February to May 2006 he was
a guest researcher at the
Computational Biology Unit, Bergen Center for Computational
Sciences, University of Bergen before he joined the Section of
Radiology at Haukeland University Hospital and the
Neuroinformatics and Image Analysis Group, Section for Physiology,
Department of Biomedicin at the University of Bergen. Currently, he
works on medical image analysis of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of human
kidney for diagnostic of renal disease financed by Innovest As, Bergen.
His research interests lie in the fields of pattern recognition, image
processing as well
as bioinformatics. In particular, he is interested in applying
computational methods from pattern recognition, image analysis, or
bioinformatics to the fields of molecular imaging and medical image analysis.
