Optimization algorithms

Group leader: Dr. Mark Bangert


We work on the incorporation of physical and mathematical models into the treatment planning process for radiation therapy. Currently, we focus on three topics:

  • Machine learning and numerical optimization techniques for the quantification and minimization of uncertainties in radiation therapy
  • Data mining to infer predictive models for the outcome of radiation therapy
  • Incorporation of additional optimization parameters into automated radiation therapy planning

We are constantly looking for motivated individuals coming from a physics, math, and/or computer science background with a genuine interest in medical physics in radiation oncology. If you are interested to join our research group for your Bachelor, Master, and PhD thesis or for a postdoc position, do not hesitate and get in touch.
