After receiving my diploma degree in computer science from the University of Münster in September 2008, I joined the Visualization and Computer Graphics Research Group. In July 2012, I received my PhD degree in computer science from the University of Münster. 
Dissertation: Interactive Feature Detection in Volumetric Data

From June 2012 till May 2014 I lead the rendering subproject within an industry collaboration regarding the application of confocal microscopy in living-cell observations.

In addition to my scientific research in the field of medical and biological volume visualization, I was a member of the core development team of the Voreen project, in which a flexible volume visualization framework is developed.
