Henk Marquering defended his PhD at the Utrecht University in 1996 on Surface-wave mode coupling: Modelling and inverting waveforms including body-wave phases. He continued his work on theoretical seismology as a post-doc in Princeton University. Here he worked on the rather controversial “banana-doughnut kernels”.
He returned to the Netherlands in 1998 to work as a researcher in the R&D department of Oce. During the 5 years that he worked here his focus was on document analysis, and image processing, most noticeably on the segmentation of Japanese newspapers.
In 2003 he joined the LKEB department of the LUMC. Here he started working on the segmentation of coronary arteries in multi-slice CT images. His work resulted in a market introduction of Medis software on CT based stenosis quantification of carotid arteries.
In 2008 he joined 3mensio as a researcher/programmer where he mainly worked on the introduction of 3mensio’s software for the measurements for sizing and patient selection for the transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI).
In September he started at the Radiology department and the Biomedical Engineering and Physics department of the Amsterdam UMC, location AMC. He is currently an associate professor and principal investigator in cardiovascular imaging and image analysis. Part of his research focusses on the application of machine learning and artifical intellligence for the analysis of radiological images. He was involved in 4 CARISMA and 1 HTSM STW projects. He was project leader of PAPAVER and the NutsOhra funded project Q-SAB. He is and was involved in multiple ITEA projects sucha as MEDUSA , 3Dpathology, Medolution, and PARTNER. Henk is also co-chairing the H2020 project INSIST forcussing on In-silico clinical trials for treatment of stroke. Recently he also got involved in two securiy-based H2020 projects; Safecare and Asclepios.
Henk is a cofounder of Nico-lab, an AMC spin-off AI company that focusses on the automated analysis of images of patients suspected of stroke. With Nico.lab the AMC has succesfully set up awarded collaborative projects such as STW take off (1 and 2), ANIMATIONS, BRAINS, ARCADES.
Henk Marquering is (co)author of over 150 peer-reviewed papers, has a H-factor of 40 (Google Scholar) and has two patents on the segmentation of japanese newspaper: Segmenting an image via a graph; Patent number: 7570811 and Segmenting an image via shortest cycles; Patent number: 7529407.
