Short Bio

I was born in Lviv, Ukraine, on April 7, 1977. I received a M.Sc. degree (cum laude) in Electrical Engineering from Ivan Franko National University of Lviv, Ukraine, in 1999. From 1999 to 2002, I was a Research Scientist at the Electrical Engineering department of the same university. During that period I carried out research in the field of nonlinear dynamical systems.

From 2003 to 2005, I was a Research Assistant (postmaster program “Mathematics for Industry”) at the department of Mathematics and Computer Science of Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands. In 2005 I graduated on the project “Design and implementation of a six camera scanning unit” and was awarded a Professional Doctorate in Engineering degree (PDEng).

From 2005 to 2009 I was a PhD student at Biomedical Imaging Group Rotterdam (BIGR), the Netherlands. My research topic is motion registration and analysis in cellular and molecular bioimaging. In 2009 I obtained a PhD degree after defending the thesis entitled “Particle Filtering Methods for Subcellular Motion Analysis”.

Since February 2009 I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Departments of Medical Informatics and Radiology of the Erasmus University in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, conducting research on in-vivo molecular image analysis.

After receiving the VENI grant in 2011, I am currently working on Adaptive Bayesian Motion Analysis Techniques.
