PhD Projects

A substantial part of CFU’s research is carried out by our PhD students. Their projects are supported by the industry, the Danish Research Foundation, private foundations and DTU and comprise ultrasound related research within flow, imaging, ultrasound techniques and hardware.

Currently, our group includes the following PhD students and though projects are individual and multi-disciplinary, we enjoy many opportunities to discuss ideas, approaches and results within the group.

The PhD students are encouraged to present their work to the faculty on a regular basis and to submit a minimum of two research papers a year to recognized journals. Participation in international conferences is also highly encouraged.
