Curriculum Vitae

THORSTEN M. BUZUG was born in Lübeck, Germany. He received his Ph.D. in 1993 in Applied Physics from the Christian-Albrechts-University of Kiel, Germany, where he worked in the field of signal processing applied to chaotic systems.

From 1993 to 1994 he had a postdoctoral position at the German Federal Armed Forces Underwater Acoustics and Marine Geophysics Research Institute, where he worked on image acquisition and processing techniques for SONAR applications.

In the end of 1994 he joined the Philips Research Laboratories Hamburg, Germany. He was the leader of the Philips Research Cluster Medical Image Processing and responsible for several projects in that field.

In October 1998 he has been appointed as professor of Physics and Medical Engineering at the RheinAhrCampus Remagen. 2000-2004 he was head of the Academic Development Committee of the RheinAhrCampus Remagen. 2004-2006 he was head of the Joint Council of Campus Departments.

In December 2006 he became Director of the Institute of Medical Engeneering at the University of Luebeck. 2011 - 2016 he served as Vice-President of the University of Luebeck.

He has published numerous journal articles, conference papers and books. He is member of the National Academy of Science and Engineering (acatech), German Physical Society (DPG), German Society of Biomedical Engineering (DGBMT), German Society of Nondestructive Testing (DGfZP), the IEEE and SPIE.
