John Heerfordt is a PhD student at CVMR and responsible for the development, implementation and dissemination of new methods as part of a collaboration with our industrial partner Siemens.

John earned his BSc and MSc degrees in biomedical engineering from Lund University in Sweden. His MSc thesis in digital pathology concerned algorithms for enhancing the display quality of mitoses. During an exchange semester at EPFL he experienced the great research atmosphere in the Lausanne region as well as the beautiful surrounding nature, hence he wanted to come back.

After graduating summer 2016 John worked as a trainee in a medical imaging company for six months before joining CVMR in February 2017. His work in cardiac MRI is focused on techniques for dealing with respiration and heart movement in order to improve image quality and reduce acquisition times. Whilst not at work he enjoys telemark skiing and running around in the forests around Lausanne or along Lake Geneva.
