Overview

Currently I am a PhD candidate at the LUMC in Leiden, working in conjunction with the TU Delft. Since April 2008 my research involves image processing and visualization, as applied to minimally invasive refixation of hip prostheses. For this project I take an active part in developing software tools to visually aid a surgeon in preoperative planning and analysis of CT images of the hip.
