I welcome you on my personal homepage.

I am a senior researcher and Head of the Ultrasound group at ImFusion GmbH in Munich, Germany, where I strive to further push the boundaries in ultrasound-based medical procedures, also employing machine learning technologies where it makes sense. I am mostly active in the MICCAI community, received the MICCAI Young Scientist Award 2013, and continue to regularly serve as peer reviewer for relevant international journals and conferences.

I am a passionate European 🇪🇺, love the Austrian 🇦🇹 mountains, but also feel connected to Greece 🇬🇷.

As a researcher, I advocate scientific discussions based on evidence rather than opinion. Consequently, I fight against the anti-vaccination movement, homeopathy, and other quackery. Furthermore, dissemination of scientific findings should be open and free, which is why I amusingly observe the development of arXiv, Sci-Hub and portals alike.

Feel free to contact me if you like.

Title image: Of course, the title image was rendered with the ImFusion Suite. It shows a 3D reconstruction of myself with RecFusion, superimposed on a full-body MR image. A robot was used to acquire a 3D ultrasound sweep with constant contact force, as depicted, which was then automatically, deformably registered to a better-quality liver MR image of me. The robot meshes are from our friends at Franka Emika.
