Christoph started his professional training at a higher secondary technical college for software engineering, followed by a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Technology in Graz, Austria. As a graduate employee at the Austrian Institute of Technology, Christoph designed and implemented a standardised interface for the automated transfer of data from cardiovascular implantable devices to a central cardiac rhythm management system at the University Hospital Graz.
During his PhD in Medical Image Analysis at the University of Nottingham, Christoph focused on the development of a method for the efficient and accurate segmentation of brain MR images into anatomical regions of interest. Alongside his PhD he also worked as an MR scanner operator at the Sir Peter Mansfield Imaging Centre where he gained experience in MR acquisition.
Christoph joined Prof. Ian Hall’s hyperpolarised lung MRI team as a Research Associate in Image Analysis 2016 where his main focus was on the development of methods and pipelines for the registration, segmentation, quality measurement and heterogeneity assessment of multi-modal imaging data acquired with 1H and hyperpolarized 129Xe MRI.
Christoph is now working as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in Image Analysis at the NIHR Nottingham Biomedical Research Centre where he is currently developing software packages for the analysis of musculoskeletal, neuroscientific and lung images. His main scientific interests include computer vision, machine learning and medical imaging.
