I am an early career researcher, having been awarded my PhD at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in July 2009. Afterwards, I worked as a research associate at QUT and since August 2010 I am a postdoctoral research fellow at the Centre for Advanced Imaging (CAI) at the University of Queensland. In 1994, I was awarded a physics engineering degree (Dipl-Ing. (FH) in Germany and afterward worked for eight years as an application engineer for optical measurements and as a technical SAP consultant. My overarching interest is the development of novel engineering tools and devices and the theoretical and numerical study of optics, nano-optics and laser. My current research is focussed on the concept development of ultra-low field magnetic resonance imaging technology with the goal to design and built a truly portable and economic MRI system. I regard my research strength to be the ability to bridge the gap between theoretical, numerical and engineering aspects. My current research themes include: • Permanent magnet arrays for generating the magnetic field environment for MRI/NMR) obviating resisitve coils • Highly localised magnetic field sensors for ULF-MRI to enhance SNR
