My name is Alexander Zeilmann and I am a Ph.D. student in mathematical modeling and image analysis for biomedical applications. I research and teach at the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies and the Heidelberg University for the Engineering Mathematics and Computing Lab.

Research Interests

My research interests include mathematical modeling, image analysis, and sensible artificial intelligence for biomedical applications. Here I focus in particular on understanding the three-dimensional structures and morphologies of tumors in cancer research and similar problems in related fields. From a mathematical point of view, I am interested in the intersection of mathematical modeling and machine learning and how these two fields can work together and benefit from each other.

Currently, I am the organizational lead for the BMBF-funded collaborative project KI-Morph, which aims to develop algorithms and infrastructure for petabyte-scale image analysis. Here, we particularly focus on the image segmentation of 3D volume data coming from all areas of life sciences.
