Rasmus R. Paulsen

I am an associate professor at the Section for Image Analysis and Computer Graphics (IACG) at the Department for Applied Mathematics and Computer Science (DTU Compute) at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU).

I did an industrial PhD at the Danish hearing aid company Oticon A/S, where the topic was the modelling and analysis of the shape of the human ear canal for use in hearing aid design. The thesis was done in collaboration with DTU Informatics (now DTU Compute) and the French research institute INRIA Sophia-Antipolis. Following the thesis, I was employed by Oticon A/S to implement part of my thesis work in production prototypes. In February 2008, I received a three years research grant from the Oticon Foundation that partly funded my initial employment at DTU. My research interests include surface based medical image analysis, computational geometry, and the application of advanced image analysis in clinical environments. Furthermore, we also do project in human motion analysis and the association between cognitive functions and motions. I am responsible for courses in medical image analysis and I supervise several PhD, master, and bachelor students.

In 2012-2015 the HEAR-EU project was running. The overall goal is to optimise the surgical procedures for cochlear implantation and to optimise the implant itself. DTU Compute is one of five partners in the project.
