Loes Braun

Her research interests are various topics residing in the overlapping area of artificial intelligence and medicine, especially radiology.

L. BraunLoes Braun studied Knowledge Engineering at Maastricht University, graduating in 2002 in the field of Artificial Intelligence (cum laude). During her education, she joined the Institute for Knowledge and Agent Technology (IKAT) as a research assistant in the Agent Technology Group. After her graduation, she stayed with IKAT (later renamed into the Maastricht ICT Competence Centre) as a Ph.D. researcher under the supervision of prof. dr. H.J. van den Herik and prof. dr. ir. A. Hasman. As a result of her joined interest in agent technology and medicine, she wrote her doctoral dissertation as part of the Medical Information Agents project (funded by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO)). Her research was published in several international refereed journals and she presented her work at numerous conferences and workshops, resulting in various awards and tokens of recognition. Loes also participated in other research projects. She worked on educational information retrieval in cooperation with the European Group on Tumour Markers and on opponent modelling as part of the ROLEC project. Furthermore, she lectured undergraduate courses on Computer Science, graduate courses on Agent Technology, and was coordinator of part of the master curriculum on Artificial Intelligence.
Furthermore, in 2007 Loes started her medical education at the Erasmus MC Medical Center Rotterdam, graduating in 2013 (cum laude). As of 2009, she is appointed at the department of Radiology as a postdoc researcher in collaboration with prof.dr. M.G.M. Hunink, prof.dr. G.P. Krestin, and dr.ir. J.A. Kors (Medical Informatics). Mainly, she is working on decision support in radiology (funded by Technology Foundation STW). As of 2013, Loes is appointed as a resident in radiology as well.
