Rasmus R. Paulsens research is within medical image analysis. Currently he is focusing on 3D surface based image analysis, with special attention to the human face and skull. RP did his PhD in the industry and has worked as a development engineer, where he acquired a structured approach to implementation and applied research. Key research topics are implicit surface representations, geometry processing, statistical shape models, facial feature analysis, and the general connection between genetics and biometric measurements. In 2008 RP received a three years research grant from the Oticon Foundation, where the goal was create an open 3D database of human heads and torsos. These models are for example used for sound field simulation in the hearing aid industry. Furthermore, RP has developed a set of algorithms for patient motion tracking during PET scanning. These are also based on his work on surfaces.
