Biographical information

Dian Anggraini received her Bachelor of Engineering from Swiss German University, Asia with major in Biomedical Engineering and a degree in Engineering and Project Management from University of Applied Science South Westphalia Soest, Germany. After spending a year in the USA (exchange program funded by the US Department of States) and working as an international intern for BASF Chemicals (previously known as Cognis GmbH) in Germany, she decided that her true passion is for science and research. In 2011, straight after receiving her bachelor degree, she joined Common European Master in Biomedical Engineering - CEMACUBE which is a 2 years master program funded by the European Union. Currently, Dian is working toward a doctoral degree (PhD) in systemic neuroscience at the Graduate School of Systemic Neuroscience - Ludwig Maximilians Universität München in Germany.

Research and Internship Work

  • Doctoral project: neural correlates of decision making process during spatial navigation in human. The study aims to develop a mathematical modeling on how people make decision when they have to maximize the outcome of their choices.
  • Neural plasticity in aging brain is the main focus of my master thesis project. The study utilizes functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) to investigate age dependent change in neural activation of several cohorts including younger adults and older adults during performance of motor and/or cognitive tasks.
  • As part of my industrial experience, I had at least 2 internship experiences for world wide supplier of specialty chemicals (BASF in Dusseldorf Germany) as well as world leading manufacturer of Medical Display Technology (Barco nv. in Kortrijk, Belgium). In addition, I have various internship experiences for hospitals and cancer research institute.
  • During my first master year, I was involved in Multidisciplinary Biomedical Project under supervision of Prof. Pascal Verdonck at Ghent University along with AZ Maria M. (General Hospital of Maria M.) in Belgium.
  • In 2011, part of my bachelor thesis was published in International Conference Electrical Engineering and Informatics. The main research area was microscope image processing in which I took part in the development of novel algorithm for automatic identification of malaria parasite from thin blood smear.
