Marco Müller, Master's Student, University of Heidelberg

Marco Müller

Marco Müller is visiting the group for six months to complete his master thesis in physics involved in the MR-Linac programme. He is enrolled at the University of Heidelberg, Germany, and is doing research at the German Cancer Research Centre (DKFZ) since 2014. In his bachelor thesis he dealt with molecular optical imaging and reconstruction algorithms for optical tomography in mice. In addition to his studies in general physics, Marco went for further education courses like Advanced Physical Methods in Radiology and Medical Physics for Physicists to cover the theory of the different areas of medical physics and performed the quality assurance of linear accelerator in the university hospital in Heidelberg. When not working, during his summer stay in Sydney Marco likes to enjoy the Australian lifestyle, do water sports or go hiking in the blue mountains.

Tobias Geimer, PhD student, Friedrich-Alexander-University

Tobias Geimer

Tobias Geimer is visiting the group for three months as part of his PhD project with the title "Multi-modal Markerless Respiratory Motion Estimation in Image-guided Radiation Therapy". He is currently in his second year as a PhD student at the Pattern Recognition Lab (Computer Science Department) at the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany, working in the field of medical image registration, machine learning, and motion modelling. In his master thesis in Medical Engineering, preluding his PhD research, he investigated ways to combine mutually exclusive information from multiple surrogate sources used to drive a motion model. Due to his enrolment in the Erlangen Graduate School in Advanced Optical Technologies (SAOT) he also attended courses on Optical Materials & Systems as well as Optics in Medicine. In his freetime, Tobias likes to experience Sydney's way of life and is very much looking forward to visiting Australia's numerous national parks.
