Biography

Joost Batenburg published more than 80 journal articles and more than 60 conference papers in the field of tomographic image processing and reconstruction. From 2013 till 2017 he chaired the EU COST Action EXTREMA on advanced X-ray tomography. He pioneered the field of discrete tomography, developing the first large-scale reconstruction methods. His current research focuses on creating a real-time tomography pipeline, funded by an NWO Vici grant. He is responsible for the FleX-Ray lab, where a custom-designed CT system is linked to advanced data processing and reconstruction algorithms.
