Jakub received the degree in Biomedical Engineering from the Lodz University of Technology, Lodz, Poland in 2012 and the MSc degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Groningen, Groningen, The Netherlands in 2014. Since 2014 he has been affiliated with the ETRO-MIT research group of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel where he did his PhD in the field of medical image analysis. Since 2021 he works as a postdoctoral researcher.

During his PhD at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Jakub worked as a researcher for the ETRO department, while being in close collaboration with the radiological departments of the UZ Brussels and Saint-Luc hospitals in Brussels region.

His work focused on:
• developing computer-aided diagnosis systems for advance prostate cancer patients with metastases,
• designing image processing techniques enhancing quality of whole-body MR imaging,
• working with deep learning methods for detection and segmentation of cancer from medical images.

As postdoctoral researcher, he currently continues to work on medical image processing topics related to whole-body MR imaging, computer-aided diagnosis systems and deep learning anomaly detection (autoencoders, diffusion models and transformers).
