After working as a radiographer for three years, I decided to study Computer Science (Media and Knowledge Engineering track) at the TU Delft. Since April 2012 I work 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 research project is called The Virtual Surgical Pelvis and aims to create a detailed 3D model of the pelvic area from heterogeneous anatomical data that can be used in education and pre-operative surgical planning. I'm a contributor at medvis.org, the blog on all things medical visualization and recently started my own blog.
Available Master Thesis Projects
If you're interested in working with me for your master thesis project, please contact Dr. C.P. Botha to discuss the possibilities.
