Biography

René C. W. Mandl obtained his Masters degree in Informatics (artificial intelligence) at the University of Amsterdam in 1996, after which he started to work as a scientific programmer at the Department of Psychiatry of the University Medical Center Utrecht. He started his PhD project (part-time) in 2004 and in 2009 he successfully defended his PhD thesis titled: “Tract-based analysis in schizophrenia: Measuring structure and function along white matter tracts”. Currently he holds a permanent position as an associate professor (research) at the Department of Psychiatry and his research expertise includes diffusion-weighted imaging, structural MRI, functional MRI, MR spectroscopy and the development of new analysis methods.He also worked from 2014 until 2019 as senior researcher (part time) at the CNSR, Psychiatric Center Glostrup, Denmark. He is involved in several international collaborations such as YOUTH, ENIGMA, and TACTICS.
