About

Raf van de Plas

The Van de Plas lab focuses on the interface between three different fields: (i) mathematical engineering and machine learning; (ii) analytical chemistry and instrumentation physics; and (iii) life sciences and medicine. Our research is specifically focused on the computational analysis of molecular imaging modalities such as imaging mass spectrometry and microscopy, and on the mathematical integration of information from different imaging technologies through data-driven image fusion.

Raf Van de Plas is assistant professor at the Delft Center for Systems and Control in the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft; Netherlands). He holds an adjunct assistant professor position in biochemistry at the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine (Nashville, TN, U.S.A.), where he is a member of the Mass Spectrometry Research Center.
