Saskia obtained her MSc ETH in Biomedical Engineering from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich in 2013, where she utilized concurrent magnetic field monitoring to improve image quality and temporal stability of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). She then moved to Brisbane in 2014 to pursue a PhD at the Centre for Advanced Imaging, The University of Queensland. Saskia was awarded her PhD for investigating contrast mechanisms and signal properties of fMRI focusing on ultra-high field applications. In 2019, she joined the Martinos Center for Biomedical Engineering, Massachusetts General Hospital, where she employed ultra-high field MRI to image the blood vessels of the human brain, and better understand their contribution to the fMRI signal. Currently, Saskia is the acting 7T NIF Facility Fellow at the Centre for Advanced Imaging, implementing high-resolution functional and structural imaging for neuroscience research.
