The PhD project of Wietske is a collaboration between the BIGR group and the department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. The aim of of here research is to develop a 4D spatio-temporal model of the developing embryonic brain. Such a model will lead to more insight into the underlying dynamics influence growth and development in this crucial stage.
Wietske obtained both here bachelor and master degree in Applied Mathematics at University of Twente in Enschede. The focus of here master was modelling spatio-temporal changes described by partial differential equations and image analysis. She did an internship at TNO’s Intelligent Imaging group on camera-independent real-time action recognition. The result can be found here. Here master thesis focused on joint dynamic MRI reconstruction and motion estimation, where her main contribution was the derivation of an non-convex optimization algoritm. Besides studying, Wietske was very involved in the student community. She dedicated one full year to be in the board of W.S.G. Abacus, study association for applied mathematics at the University of Twente. She was a teaching assistant for various programs, organized and chaired evaluation meetings of the bachelor program Applied Mathematics, and finally she was part of the general promotion team for the University of Twente. In her free time Wietske likes to run, cook and drink an drink occasionally some (craft) beer.
