Tim Schakel graduated in Medical Engineering from the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven in 2011. His master thesis research was carried out at the Radiotherapy department of the UMC Utrecht and focused on MRI-based quantification of radiation induced damage to the salivary glands.
After a short period with Philips Healthcare in Best, getting familiar with the implementation of new MRI methods, he started as a PhD student in April 2012.
His main research topic is diffusion weighted MRI for head and neck radiotherapy, developing MRI sequences with a focus on geometrical accuracy.
