Dirk Poot started in March 2010 as a PostDoc in the BIGR group. He works mainly on topics related to statistical medical image processing.
In 2005, Dirk received his MSc degree from the Delft University of Technology.
From 2005 to 2010, he worked as PhD student at the University of Antwerp, on statistical methods for MR image processing. The title of the resulting thesis is “Advances in the reconstruction and statistical processing of Magnetic Resonance images”. It describes new and improved methods for B0 field estimation, super resolution reconstruction, noise level estimation, brain activation detection with functional MRI, and experimental design of Diffusion Kurtosis Imaging.
The projects in which Dirk is currently involved are for example improving tissue segmentation by including an acquisition model in the segmentation process and improving quantitative analysis of MR images by taking into account the image noise and subject motion.
