During my Master Thesis project, I aim to apply my knowledge on estimation and filtering to the field of ultrasound localization microscopy (ULM).  The goal of my project is to develop a method to better assess blood flow in the microvasculature. 

In my free time, I like to go outdoors or to the bouldering gym! Besides that, I'm always up for a coffee!
