Sebastian W. Rieger

Dipl.-Ing.(FH), MSc, PhD

Imaging Support Scientist

  • MRI experiment support across the WIN sites (BSB, FMRIB, OHBA)

Seb Rieger is a physicist who thinks that MRI research facilities shouldn't be difficult to use. He ensures our MRI platforms are user friendly and reliable, and makes the modality accessible to researchers from a wide range of disciplines - whether they are new to MRI or seasoned experts. Seb advises on MRI physics and MRI compatible instrumentation, and continues to develop the setups to enable even the most technically challenging MRI projects. Seb's research interests revolve around breaking down the barriers that prevent MRI from being used to its full potential for understanding the brain. This ranges from developing and building bespoke instrumentation to forwarding our understanding of who can be safely scanned at high field. Seb also runs the centre's imaging support survey which aims to measure the impact of the core team's activities, and he manages the centre’s facility booking system, and the workshop at FMRIB.
