About me

I am a post-doctoral Research Associate at the Centre for Medical Image Computing, working on software development for surgical guidance in minimally invasive surgery. I previously obtained a PhD from the Department of Computing at Imperial College London, focussing around appearance modelling for minimally invasive surgery.

Projects

SmartLiver: Image guidance for minimally invasive liver resection

This project develops a guidance system for actual use in surgery. I am developing software for image processing, live video streaming, visualisation, high-performance computing, and general architecture.

ARAKNES: Array of robots augmenting the kinematics of endoluminal surgery

http://www.araknes.org/
I am working on software integration and realtime video processing.

PASSPORT: Patient specific simulation and preoperative realistic training for liver surgery

http://www.passport-liver.eu/
This project focussed on liver modelling for tumour resection. It investigated on growth modelling, resection simulation, virtual training and biomedical simulation. I was working on texture map generation/synthesis for virtual organ models.

RT-ISIS: Realtime in situ in vivo surgical sensing and imaging

http://ubimon.doc.ic.ac.uk/rtisis/
I was working on video mosaicking to expand the narrow field of view of endoscopic cameras.
