I’m an Associate Professor (tenure track position) in the visualization group at the University of Bergen, Norway, since 2017. My research focuses on model-based visualization for medical applications, as well as multi-modal visualization in the context of computational medicine. My position is also associated to the Mohn Medical Imaging and Visualization (MMIV) centre.
A bit about my background: after working as a radiographer for three years, I decided to study Computer Science (Media and Knowledge Engineering track) at the TU Delft. specializing in Computer Graphics and Visualization. Since April 2012 I worked there as a PhD candidate in the field of medical visualization at the TU Delft in collaboration with the Anatomy and Embryology department at the LUMC in Leiden. My PhD research project, entitled ‘The Virtual Surgical Pelvis’, aimed to create a detailed virtual 3D model of the pelvic area from heterogeneous anatomical data that could be used in education and pre-operative surgical planning.
While I have a hard enough time keeping my hobby blog GameCakes (RIP!) and the blog on all things medical visualization medvis.org up to date already, I realized I didn’t have any place online to post about my personal/professional life yet. That happens to be exactly where this blog comes in!
