Research Interests

As a PhD student I worked on bringing a projector-based Augmented Reality needle navigation system onto the patient inside the MRI bore. My research interest is especially the accurate calibration in the technically challenging environment of the MRI. What’s more, I aim to provide a navigation concept that is best usable in this context.
