Malte’s research focuses on the development of computer-vision algorithms for medical image processing and analysis using artificial intelligence. He is particularly interested in registration, which captures the spatial relationship between objects from images. Malte’s work also includes exploiting this information to advance medical imaging applications with clinical impact, such as fetal-MRI acquisition protocols.
