Sebastian Kozerke, PhD, is a Professor of Biomedical Imaging at the Institute for Biomedical Engineering of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH Zurich), Switzerland, where he leads the Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance research.

Sebastian studied Electrical and Biomedical Engineering. He obtained his PhD degree and the Venia legendi from ETH Zurich in 2000 and 2005, respectively. In 2002-03 he was a research associate at the Division of Imaging Sciences at King’s College London, UK. In 2003 he founded the startup company GyroTools LLC to help translating imaging research into applicable prototypes for MR experimentalists and clinicians. He was recruited as a Professor and Chair of MR physics at King’s College London in 2008 before being promoted to Professor at the University of Zurich in 2010. In 2014 he was elected to the rank of a Full Professor at ETH Zurich where he heads the Biomedical Imaging laboratory, serves as the chair of the Center for Experimental and Clinical Imaging Technologies (EXCITE Zurich) and is the Director of Studies at the Department of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering.

The research of Sebastian Kozerke spans from developments in MR pulse sequence design, scan acceleration techniques, novel information encoding concepts, dynamic nuclear polarization techniques to experimental validation and clinical translation of MR methods.

Sebastian is the author of more than 250 peer-reviewed journal articles and 5 patents. He is a dedicated and enthusiastic teacher and enjoys frequent invitations to the major conferences and workshops in the field. In addition to numerous original conference contributions, he has been involved as a lecturer in workshops, educational and plenary activities.
