UB graduate Peter Noel, now an assistant professor at the Institute for Radiology, Technical University at Munchen, Germany, was recently awarded the prestigious Behnken-Berger-Award (2nd place).
Dr. Noel, who earned his Ph.D in 2009, was supervised by CSE Associate Professor Jinhui Xu.
This award was generated in 2000 for young researchers in the field of X-ray/medical imaging and awards 3 young researchers annually in all of Germany. Peter wins this award (to a large degree) due to his work at UB on designing new algorithms for reconstructing 3D CT images rom limited views and multi-view angiography. Ken Hoffmann was his co-advisor and Jason Corso was his dissertation committee member. Both of them had supervised him and contributed to success. (November 19, 2010)
