My name is Oussama Jarrousse. I have a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) where I worked on 4D personalised computational modelling of human heart elasto-mechanics, breast deformation modelling, and non-linear anisotropic elastic image registration.
During my post-doc at the Narvis-Lab of the Ludwig-Maximilians University (LMU) hospital in Munich, I was investigating the use of Vibroarthrography in non-invasive early diagnosis of knee osteoarthritis as part of the lab research team.
Currently, I am the head of Software Development and a Research Engineer at the Munich-Innovation Labs (MIL), where I manage the team of software developers at the company and where I work on several Medical Engineering research questions, with focus on Medical Image Processing and AI applications in Medicine and Biology.
Recently, I started providing consultancy, training and support in the field of Cyber-Security, and Information Assurance (IA), mainly to NGOs working to protect journalists, civil society activists and human rights defenders working in high-risk environments around the world.
I care deeply about human rights, democracy and the rule of law. Since 2011, I have been actively engaging in campaigning and working with political actors, to progress the cause of democracy and human rights in Syria, and with activists, and humanitarian organisations, to mitigate the effects of the civil war on the population over there.
