Timo Damm was born in Aurich, East Frisia, Germany in 1979.
He received a Diploma in Physics from the Free University of Berlin in 2004. He started his scientific career working on joint 2D/3D data interpretation and visualization at the Christian-Albrechts University of Kiel within an interdisziplinary collaborative research center. In 2012 he joined the Biomedical Imaging Group of the Department of Diagnostic Radiology at the University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein in Kiel.
His scientific interest is the application of methods from Computational Physics and 3D Image Processing to the broad field of Quantitative Computed Tomography (CT), both in clinical and preclincal settings. He is principal scientist for MOIN-CC's Scanco VivaCT 80 micro-CT scanner and lead programmer of StructuralInsight, our own evaluation toolkit for quantiative CT data (C++, Qt, ITK/VTK) covering the complete Analysis workflow (e.g. data quality assurance, calibration, segmentation and Registration). His special research interest is the quantitative evaluation of fine bone morphometric parameters from low-resolution CT data, as aquired by low-dose scan protocols.
