R. (Raf) van de Plas
Raf Van de Plas is Associate Professor at the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) in the Netherlands, within the Delft Center for Systems and Control. He works on the mathematical analysis of spectral imaging systems (e.g. imaging mass spectrometry), signal processing and machine learning for molecular imaging modalities (e.g. microscopy), and data-driven multi-modal fusion between imaging technologies. He is furthermore appointed Adjunct Assistant Professor at the Vanderbilt School of Medicine at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN in the United States.
Dr. Van de Plas obtained his Ph.D. in Engineering Sciences at the KU Leuven (Belgium) on the topic of Multivariate Datamining Strategies for Imaging Mass Spectrometry in 2010. He holds a degree in Industrial Engineering (Groep T, 2002) and an Advanced Master in Artificial Intelligence (KU Leuven, 2003). Before starting at the TU Delft in 2014, he held a post-doc and later a faculty position at the Mass Spectrometry Research Center (MSRC) at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN (United States).
Dr. Van de Plas' research focuses on the interface between three different fields: (i) mathematical engineering and machine learning; (ii) analytical chemistry and instrumentation physics; and (iii) life sciences and medicine. His research is concentrated at the cross-section between these areas, with a focus towards deepening the understanding of in-tissue bio-molecular processes and patho-mechanisms.
