We are happy to report that our team is complete now: with Martin Burger and Dagmar Kainmüller joining as Heads of the Research Units at DESY and MDC, we now have a Research Unit established in each of our three host centers. The Helmholtz Imaging Research Units and Support Units as well as Management Unit operate the platform, provide all administrative, operational, technical, and scientific services and coordinate networking and outreach for the entire community.
Research Unit DESY
We were able to attract Prof. Dr. Martin Burger as Research Unit Lead at DESY as of April 2023. Martin is appointed jointly with the mathematics faculty of the University of Hamburg. Improving the reconstruction of tomographic applications, that is one of the many goals of Martin’s research group: They will take images from PETRA III and the X-ray lasers at DESY and try to extract good 3D information from the various two-dimensional diffraction data of the tiny objects under investigation.
In addition, Martin and his team want to develop new mathematical methods to quantify uncertainties as well as algorithms to compress huge amounts of data without losing important information.
Research Unit MDCLooking forward to many exciting interdisciplinary collaborations around image reconstruction within the Helmholtz society!
Last October, Prof. Dr. Dagmar Kainmüller joined as Helmholtz Imaging Research Unit Lead at the MDC. The focus of her research group is on integrative imaging data sciences. They want to devise generic imaging solutions at scale, as well as solutions across multiple modalities and scales in space and time.
Their goal is to solve challenging problems across the imaging pipeline, including image stitching, multi-modal image matching across scales, as well as leveraging prior knowledge in image analysis problems.
