My main research interest is more or less any kind of combined PET/MR-imaging. On the “technical” side this involves the development of new and optimized combined PET/MR system on the basis of simulations for MR-compatibility of PET-scanners/inserts and for the PET-detector itself. This is done using self-developed as well as professional software tools, such as GEANT4/GATE and CST/Simulia, and the main focus lies on PET-inserts for brain- and breast-PET/MR. Further, I am interested in sophisticated data analysis methods, which take into account time-of-flight (ToF) and depth-of-interaction (DoI) information, to improve the spatial resolution.
