Simon Hoffmann will be research assistant at the IBT

We welcome Mr. Simon Hoffmann as a research assistant. His work will focus on data processing in ophthalmology.

The Institute of Biomedical Engineering welcomes Mr. Simon Hoffmann as a research assistant starting on May 1st, 2021.

The progression of common age-related macular degeneration (AMD) goes hand in hand with massive restrictions in the patient’s daily life. Diagnostic methods evolve rapidly. They are applied in early detection as well as in monitoring of the disease within treatment. Mr. Hoffmann’s work will focus on processing of this diagnostic data. Towards personalized treatment of AMD, resulting in an improved conservation of the patient’s eyesight, the robust and quantitative data processing sets a milestone.

Simon Hoffmann studied mechatronics at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. In his master thesis, he examined and modeled mechanisms of radiation transfer in human tissue.
