Theses

Ali Caglar Özen was born in Turkey in 1988. He received a Bachelor's degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Bilkent University, Ankara, in 2011, a Master's degree in the same department in 2013, and his Ph.D. degree from the Institute of Microstructure Technology at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany, in 2017.

In 2013 he joined the Department of Radiology, Medical Physics at the University Medical Center Freiburg as a research assistant. In 2017 he became a Post-doctoral Fellow at the German Consortium for Translational Cancer Research Partner Site Freiburg.

He is currently involved in scientific research and technology development in the fields of Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Cardiovascular Interventions, and MR Safety.

Dr. Özen is a member of the International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and is a School of Oncology Fellow of the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ). He was the recipient of the young investigator award of the European Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and Biology in 2015. In 2019, he received the Lasby Fellowship from the University of Minnesota.
