Tim van de Brug

Research statement

My research focuses on high-dimensional statistics and machine learning for the analysis of medical imaging data. I specialize in both MRI and PET data, with applications in neuroscience and oncology. I develop advanced methodology to extract very detailed information from images, not visible to the naked eye, and use this to predict disease progression and treatment response. For example, I am currently working on a radiomics approach to select the optimal therapy for diffuse large B-cell lymphoma patients based on whole-body PET-CT scans. My background is in mathematics, in particular probability theory and mathematical physics.
