Biography

I am a Professor within the Department of Computer ScienceUCL and part of the Vision and Imaging Sciences Group. I am also a member of the Wellcome / EPSRC Centre for Interventional and Surgical Sciences (WEISS) and the Centre for Medical Image Computing (CMIC)My research interests and expertise are in surgical vision and computational imaging, surgical robotics, image guided therapies and surgical process analysis. I first studied electronics and computer systems engineering at King's College before completing a PhD in computer science at Imperial College specializing in medical image computing.



Research Summary

I work on vision problems in minimally invasive surgery especially related to non-rigid structure from motion, scene flow and photometric and geometric camera calibration. My work is applied towards developing image guidance, computational biophotonic imaging modalities and quantative measurements during robotic assisted minimally invasive procedures.

Teaching Summary

I am founder and director of the the MSc Robotics and Computation and MRes in Robotics for which I teach the advanced MSc course in Robotic Systems Engineering. I also supervise MSc research projects across various MSc programmes in the department, especially the Computer Graphics, Vision and Imaging (CGVI), Machine Learning (CL) and Computational Statistics and ML (CSML). Currently, I supervise 9 PhD students as primary supervisor.
