Welcome to my personal scientific home page!
I work at ETH Zurich in the Scientific Center for Optical and Electron Microscopy (ScopeM) together with a small group of dedicated Image and Data Analysts (IDA). We apply classic methods and artificial intelligence to analyze image-data from the lifesciences.
Why the raccoon?
We chose the raccoon as logo for our group for three reasons
- We like it — it has a face
- It is easy to threshold
- It has abilities we strive to emulate:
- “Raccoons are noted for their intelligence, with studies showing that they are able to remember the solution to tasks for at least three years” Wikipedia
