Computational Imaging


In December 2017 I joined CWI for a master thesis internship. After finishing my masters, I returned in October 2018 to start a PhD in the Computational Imaging group. My project is a collaboration between this group and the Rijksmuseum. The goal is to scan art objects with a CT-scanner to look inside them and answer art historical questions, for example to discover their making process. For my bachelors I studied Mathematics and Physics at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. Afterwards I did a master Mathematics at Leiden University, with a focus on applied mathematics and a specialisation in Science Communication and Society. I enjoy presenting interesting scientific work to a broad audience and hope to be able to integrate this in the PhD project.
