Head Quantitative Image Analysis

My main interest is quantitative image sequence processing as an analysis tool for scientific, medical and industrial data.

In typical applications, detailed and accurate physical, biological, medical or technical models of the observed objects are available. Unfortunately, in most cases acquired images do not directly reveal the object properties of interest. In addition, scientific, medical or industrial imaging often operates at the limit of sensor sensitivity and thus the acquired data suffers from noise.

Therefore the general problem addressed in my research is parameter estimation - i.e. measurement of object properties - in corrupted or noisy multidimensional data. It is based on fast, robust and highly accurate estimation algorithms as well as discretizations of partial differential equations and their statistical motivation.
