Biography

I am a Professor of Robot Vision at the Department of Computer Science and Director of the Wellcome/EPSRC Centre for Interventional and Surgical Sciences (WEISS). I am also on the board of the Centre for Medical Image Computing (CMIC) and the UCL Robotics Institute. 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 robotics and artificial intelligence problems in minimally invasive surgery especially related to vision and computational imaging. 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 programme 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/MRes 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).
