Malte Hoffmann is a faculty member in Radiology at Harvard Medical School and Affiliated Faculty in the Health Sciences and Technology Division at MIT. He received a Bachelor’s degree in physics from the University of Paris XI and a Master’s degree and PhD from the University of Cambridge, specializing in the correction of subject motion for brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Dr. Hoffmann’s research focuses on algorithms for medical image processing and analysis using artificial intelligence. His work spans innovations in deep learning, computer vision, and MRI acquisition. He is particularly interested in registration, which captures the spatial relationship between objects from images, and in leveraging this information to advance applications with clinical impact, such as fetal MRI.
