Georg Schramm


I am an Assistant Professor in Molecular Image Reconstruction and Analysis at KU Leuven, Belgium, emphasizing improved diagnostic image quality through advanced modeling, cutting-edge reconstruction algorithms, and sustainable machine learning techniques.

Born in 1987 in Görlitz, Germany, I spent my childhood engrossed in football and playing saxophone and clarinet in the local music school’s big band. In 2005, I moved to Dresden to study physics at TU Dresden, later completing an Erasmus semester at the University of Sheffield in 2009. I earned my Master’s in physics in 2011, ranking among the top five graduates in TU Dresden’s School of Science.

In 2015, I obtained a PhD (Dr. rer. medic) in medical imaging with the highest distinction (summa cum laude) from TU Dresden / Helmholz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf. Following seven years as a Postdoc at KU Leuven, Belgium, focusing on advanced image reconstruction techniques for molecular imaging, I spent a year as a visiting instructor at Stanford University, CA, working on sodium MR image reconstruction.

In my free time, I enjoy hiking, photography, cycling, as well as supporting the San Francisco 49ers.


Nov 7, 2023 Our paper “Resolution enhancement, noise suppression, and joint T2* decay estimation in dual-echo sodium-23 MR imaging using anatomically-guided reconstruction” is accepted for publication in Magnetic Resonance and Medicine and freely available on arxiv.
Nov 6, 2023 Together with Andrew Reader and Kuang Gong, I am teaching the short course “Medical Image Reconstruction: from Foundations to AI” at the IEEE NSS/MIC 2023 in Vancouver. My slides and hands-on examples are here.
Sep 11, 2023 I started a new position as assistant Professor for Molecular Imaging and Analysis at KU Leuven, Belgium.
Jan 3, 2023 The preprint of the benchmark paper on my open source GPU projector paralleproj is now on arxiv.
Nov 12, 2022 My PI from Leuven Johan Nuyts is awarded with the IEEE NPSS and NMISC Edward J Hoffman Medical Imaging Scientist Award. Congratulations Johan!
