Antal Horvath was born in Basel, Switzerland, in 1987. In 2007, he acquired his general qualification for university entrance at the Gymnasium Münchenstein, where he achieved an award for his matriculation project in programming a computer video game.
He then studied Mathematics with a focus on Numerical Analysis at the University of Basel. During his Bachelor and Master studies, he worked as a teaching assistant at the Mathematical Institute of Basel. He received his B.Sc. in Mathematics in 2011 and his M.Sc. in Mathematics in 2014. For his Doctoral studies, he joined the Medical Faculty of the University of Basel in 2015 to work on the research project Segmentation of the Gray and White Matter in the Human Spinal Cord ( read PhD dissertation), funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation.
Since January 2020, he is a Postdoctoral Researcher in the group of Prof. Dr. Philippe Cattin at the Department of Biomedical Engineering of the University of Basel, Switzerland, where he co-leads the Planning and Navigation Group.
