Position: Postdoctoral Research Associate

Interests:

My main research activity has been lately data protection and the anonymisation of DICOM objects in particular. I am interested in the different privacy requirements for different usages and for the different stages of the data in a research project (internal use, public data access). I am also interested in the development of parallel applications, in particular in the possibility of using GP-GPUs (General Purpose Graphics Processing Unit) for data parallel applications in brain imaging. I think there is a lot of potential in this technology and it would allow having a considerable computing power available in small departments without the management burden of clusters.
