    Hakim Achterberg was born on 1984 in Tilburg, The Netherlands. He lived there until he finished his VWO (high school) in 2003.

    Following high school, Hakim started with a studies in Biomedical Engineering at the Eindhoven University of Technology. During the studies Hakim came in contact with Image Analysis and stated specializing in Biomedical Image Analysis after obtaining his B.Sc.

    After his receiving his B.Sc. degree, he went a year on exchange to the Umeå University in Sweden. There he strengthened his knowledge of computing science, image analysis and visualization further. Once back in the Netherlands Hakim performed his internship at the x-ray predevelopment group of Philips Healthcare in Best. In 2009 he finished his thesis “Optimal Acquisition Schemes in High Angular Diffusion Imaging” and received his M.Sc. degree from the Eindhoven University of Technology

    As of December 2009 Hakim is working as a PhD student in the BIGR group on the Neuro Image Analysis research line. His work is focused on shape analysis of brain structures in relation to neuro-degenerative diseases. Currently, there are two main pillars of his work: first there is analysis of the imaging data from the Rotterdam Scan Study, a large cohort study on aging, and second there is the evaluation and improvement of general methods for shape analysis.
