I would like to create a bibliography for my CV, where my name is emphasized to stand out from the list of authors. I've already tried various things, including the suggestions provided here and here. However, nothing seems to work with the particular style I would like to follow. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

This is my .tex file. It contains two attempts that worked at least partially. the \newcommand{\bibnamefont} gives something close to what I want, but this way I can only emphasize "Boll" or "R." or both, but not "R. Boll" exclusively.

The solution %\let\originalbibitem... does that, but it only works when I use the \bibliographystyle{IEEEtran} instead of my .bst file, where it results in ! File ended while scanning use of \bibitem. I am guessing that my \bibitem follows a different logic compared to what is used in the example, but I'm not sure how I could change it for my case.

\usepackage         [super, compress]       {natbib}
\usepackage[top=0.9in, bottom=0.9in, left=0.9in, right=0.9in]{geometry}
\hypersetup{colorlinks = true, urlcolor=darkblue, citecolor=white}

\newcommand{\bibnamefont}[1]{\IfSubStr{#1}{Boll} {{\color{darkblue} \textbf{#1}}}{#1}} 
\newcommand{\bibfnamefont}[1]{\IfStrEq{#1}{R.} {{\color{darkblue}\textbf{#1}}}{#1}} 

%\renewcommand{\bibfield}[1]{\IfSubStr{#1}{Boll} {\StrSubstitute{#1}{\bibnamefont {Boll}}{\color{darkblue}\textbf{Boll}}}{#1}} 

%\noexpandarg \originalbibitem{#1}
%\StrSubstitute{#2}{R.~Boll}{{\color{darkblue}\textbf{R.~Boll}}} \par}






This is the content of the bib file:

I would like to attach the .bst file as well, but I can't figure out how to add a file to the post. It is too long to post as code. I am using a modified version of the apsrev4-1.bst. Instead, I attach here the .bbl file, maybe it also helps.

I'm new to this page, so I apologize in case I didn't obey some formatting rules.

    Instead of {\color{white} \cite{boll_imaging_2014} you can use \nocite{boll_imaging_2014} so you don't have to hide the citation. – moewe Oct 12 '15 at 8:59
  • It is a CV, so it requires quite some work to make it look nice and right. Instead of investing time in hacking the bibliography, i would do it by hand. – Johannes_B Oct 13 '15 at 9:55

After a long time, I figured out a solution myself. It can be done by adding

 \IfSubStr{#2}{Boll} {\textbf{#2}}{#2}} 

in the preamble.
