Dr.-Ing.
Volker Daum

Volker Daum studied Computer Science at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, with a focus on numerical methods and hardware optimization. During his studies, he visited the Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute (SCI) at the University of Utah, where he worked as a research assistant on a project for large scale numerical simulation.

After completing his university degree (with honours), he was with the Fraunhofer IIS until starting his PhD, financed by a grant from the international Max-Planck research school (IMPRS) for optics and photonics. In his doctoral thesis, his research is focusing on non-rigid image registration problems for multi-modal medical images.

Dr.-Ing.
Dieter Hahn

At the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Dieter Hahn obtained his PhD (with honours) on statistical similarity measures for medical image registration and his diploma in Computer Science (with honours) on feature-based image registration. The research for his diploma thesis was carried out while he was working several months as an intern for Siemens Corporate Research, Princeton, NJ, USA.

During his time at the Pattern Recognition Lab of the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, he was teaching Exercises for Pattern Recognition and Computer Vision with Applications in Augmented Reality. He was also head of the Image Registration and Time-of-Flight Group.

Dr.-Ing.
Marcus Prümmer

Marcus Prümmer studied Computer Science at the University of Mannheim. After his diploma thesis on vessel segmentation and analysis, he worked as a freelancer for Siemens Healthcare. Later, he finished his PhD thesis on motion estimation and compensation for cardic C-arm CT reconstruction at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg.

During his research, he was teaching Exercises on Medical Image Processing at the Pattern Recognition Lab of the University Erlangen-Nuremberg. Between 2005 and 2010 he was head of the medical image processing group at the Pattern Recognition Lab. In cooperation with Siemens Healthcare he developed in 2006 reconstruction algorithms for cardiac C-arm CT at Stanford University, Department of Radiology, Lucas Center, California, USA. In 2009 he became senior researcher at the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg.
