Welcome

This is the professional website of Tim Schäfer. I am a bioinformatician and neuroscientist. I currently work as a research software engineer in the Fries Lab at ESI.

Tim Schäfer

I have contributed to a range of open source projects and I am the author and maintainer of some neuroimaging software tools, including the freesurferformats and fsbrain packages for R, and libraries providing access to neuroimaging data for C++, Julia, Rust and Python.

I am especially interested in spatial geometry, 3D imaging, artificial intelligence and high-performance computing. You can find the source code for most of my software on my GitHub profile.

You may be interested in my projects, or the list of my publications.
