CAI2R Post Doctoral Fellow Florian Knoll receives Junior Fellow Award at 22nd Annual ISMRM conference

Post Doctoral Fellow, Florian Knoll, has received the Junior Fellow Award this year at the 22nd Annual Conference of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine. The award is given annually to Junior Research level scientist based on their academic achievements, overall potential, and their contributions and commitment to the society. The Junior Fellows receive an award certificate, travel stipend, waived registration fee for the conference as well as a one-year mentorship from a senior ISMRM fellow for further guidance and career development.

In 2013, Florian came to CAI2R to work with Daniel Sodickson, Vice Chair for Research. He utilizes his expertise in mathematical optimization, inverse problems and numerical methods for image reconstructions. While at CAI2R, Florian has developed a method for joint reconstruction of MR and PET data and is currently working on model based reconstruction methods for diffusion imaging, nonlinear image reconstruction for CT dose reduction, and fast implementations of reconstruction algorithms with the use of graphic processing units (GPU). Two of the GPU based reconstruction software developed by Florian is currently available on the CAI2R software downloads page.

As Florian continues his innovative work here at CAI2R, he will now have the benefit guidance from his ISMRM Senior Fellow mentor Craig Mayer from the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Virginia.
