Oliver Wieben, PhD, received his undergraduate degree (Vordiplom) in Electrical Engineering from the University of Hanover, Germany, his Masters of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Karlsruhe, Germany, and his doctorate in Electrical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin–Madison. He has worked as a scientist at the University Hospital in Freiburg, Germany and joined the faculty of the Deptartments of Medical Physics and Radiology at the University of Wisconsin in Madison in 2008. Dr. Wieben is interested in the development of rapid cardiovascular imaging methods for non-invasive magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and their application to improve clinically relevant diagnosis. His research focuses on the investigation of methods to improve the data acquisition and image reconstruction for more rapid MR imaging as well as post-processing methods to facilitate comprehensive, non-invasive hemodynamic assessment of the vascular system.
