Laura earned a BSc in Physics, an MSc in Medical Physics, a medical degree and a medical doctoral grade (Dr. med.) at Ruhr-University Bochum.
At Oxford, Laura is reading for a DPhil in Medical Science. Her research focusses on discovering new AI-based imaging biomarkers for cardiovascular risk prediction using computed tomography. She is aiming to apply novel radiotranscriptomic approaches and artificial intelligence, to develop new biomarkers to detect inflammation in the human adipose tissue, flagging individuals with metabolically unhealthy obesity, who are at risk for heart attacks and strokes.
