My main research interests are related to the development of innovative surgical and diagnostic instruments and techniques in the area of ophthalmology. My research is focused on treatment planning for external beam radiotherapy of intraocular tumors. Therefore, statistical modeling, image registration, segmentation and high accuracy 3D eye tracking play a key role.
