Marcus holds a degree in physics from Hamburg University specializing in medical physics with stays at the University of British Columbia and the University of California at Berkeley. He also holds a PhD degree in physics from RWTH Aachen University within the field of medical imaging with a research stay at the University of Pennsylvania.
Technical and practical experience
In his time as a PhD student at the Institute for Neuroscience and Medicine at the Research Centre Jülich and the RWTH Aachen University, Marcus worked on the development of methods for Magnetic Resonance
Imaging (MRI). After completing his PhD, Marcus worked in method development of a combined MR-PET prototype scanner at the Research Centre Jülich. At the Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center and the Department of Chemistry at Aarhus University, Marcus worked on developing methods for hyperpolarization in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (NMR) and MRI.
Marcus is an author of scientific articles within the field of medical imaging, and has experience in development of methods for medical imaging within MRI, NMR, Positron Emission Tomography (PET), MR-PET and hardware development for PET.
