Emile S. Berg very recently started his PhD study at the chemistry department. The project will be conducted in close collaboration with Haukeland University hospital (HUS) and includes investigating diffusion MRS sequences for two different nuclei and in functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). The PhD runs over 4 years with main supervisor Assoc. Prof. John Georg Seland and co-supervisor Assoc. Prof. Eli Renate Grüner. Emile holds BSc and MSc degrees in Physics from UiB. His master project demonstrated the effects of a new post-processing technique in diffusion imaging called free water elimination. He also spent some time working at HUS testing different machine learning and deep learning techniques in the classification of fMRI data.
