Christoph graduated from TU München in 2011 with a Diploma (MSc) in Electrical Engineering and information technology. He then joined Curefab GmbH, a start-up in the field of 3D ultrasound imaging and started a PhD in the field of domain-specific modeling for freehand vascular ultrasound at the chair for Computer Aided Medical Procedures (CAMP), supervised by Prof. Nassir Navab. His background in electrical and biomedical engineering as well as computer science with a focus on computer vision in medical applications forms the basis for his clinical research interests and strong network with medical experts of various disciplines. Christoph's major research interests lie in interventional and diagnostic imaging, physical modeling in medicine, the development of medical devices as well as clinically-driven innovation in the medical field in general. Throughout his professional career, he has contributed significantly to various research and industrial projects so far, both on a national and international basis. Among these is a spin-off for the detection of arterial stenosis by implantable pressure sensors, which has already shown a successful proof-of-concept and underwent pre-seed financing. He further refined his innovative thinking with a system aiming at the robotically-aided compensation of brain shift in neurosurgery, for which he won the B.E.S.T innovative mind competition in 2014, supported by IRCAD, France. Christoph is the author of various peer-reviewed publications and holds multiple patent applications in the field of medical technology and its applications. In his spare time, he enjoys photography, mountain climbing and general outdoor activities.
