Research interest

With my experiences lying in both in condensed matter physics and the biomedical domain, my research interests are centered on the examination of biomedical samples with various physical investigation techniques.

I have an interdisciplinary scientific background, having accomplished the preclinical studies in medicine and holding a MSc. degree in nanoscience. During my studies with my major in physics, I acquired some practical expertise in several research fields, ranging from quantum sensing, to nanoelectronics and epigenetics. 

In my PhD I work with both absorption- and phase contrast-based X-ray imaging techniques at low energy, including both radiography and computer tomography. My present work focusses on the investigation of blood clots of stroke patients with mainly grating-based X-ray techniques and μ-CT. Further, my interests include tomographic reconstruction and image processing techniques.
