Main Focus

During my diploma project in Computational Physics (https://doi.org/10.1016/j.neuroimage.2010.07.061 (2010)) and my diploma project in Computer Science (https://doi.org/10.1002/hbm.21479 (2011)), both supervised by Axel Thielscher, I simulated the electric field produced in the human brain by transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS).

The software for the simulation of the electric field and the automated generation of high resolution tetrahedral meshes based on magnetic resonance images of the human head suited to be used in finite element simulations was released as open source and is still used and developed today: https://github.com/simnibs/simnibs
