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 University and the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies for the Engineering Mathematics and Computing Lab.

Before that, I worked and studied mathematics in Heidelberg, Munich and Utrecht.
In my free time, I enjoy photography and hiking with my partner.

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.
