Curriculum Vitae

KSENIJA GRÄFE was born in Düsseldorf, Germany in 1986. In 2009 she received her B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology from the University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany. In 2009 she wrote her bachelor thesis at the Fraunhofer Institute for Microelectronic Circuits and Systems. She received her M.Sc. in Biomedical Engineering from the Leibniz University Hannover, Germany, in 2011. In 2010/2011 she finished her university studies with the master thesis, which she wrote at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering, Karlsruhe. Since 08/2011 she joined the Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI) group as a research assistant at the Institute of Medical Engineering, Lübeck. She received her PhD in 2016.

Additionally, she is part of the Lübecker IngenieurInnen Labor (LILa), which aims at raising interest of high school students for the field of science and technology, especially medical engineering.
