Stefanie completed her MSc in Technical Physics at TU Wien (Vienna, Austria). In 2019, she became PhD student at the Institute of High Energy Physics (Austrian Academy of Sciences), where she investigated computed tomography with ion beams for improved cancer therapy. In her work, she focused on image reconstruction using data from Monte Carlo simulations and from a demonstrator system installed at the MedAustron facility in Wr. Neustadt. Therefore, she contributed to several beam times. One of the main challenges of ion computed tomography are the non-straight ion paths, which have to be incorporated in the reconstruction. Therefore, Stefanie extended the GPU-based TIGRE toolbox, initially developed for x-ray CT reconstruction, and investigated its potential for ion imaging in detail. She defended her PhD thesis in December 2022.

In January 2023, she joined the TOMCAT group of Prof. Marco Stampanoni, where she works on phase contrast imaging for breast computed tomography.
