Eddie Edwards

Eddie Edwards received his BA(hons) in Physics from Balliol College, Oxford (1988) and his Masters in Medical Physics from the University of Surrey (1992). He has worked for over 25 years in the field of image-guided surgery. His work on image registration and augmented reality guidance as a Research Assistant at Kings College London resulted in his PhD (2002) entitled "Alignment and Visualisation in Image-guided Intervention". As a Lecturer at Imperial College for nearly 10 years he focused on augmented reality in robot-assisted surgery including image segmentation and video image analysis. After several years in industry including work in retinal image analysis, he joined UCL in 2018 as a Senior Research Associate within the UCL Robotics Institute as part of the Surgical Robot Vision group, WEISS, Department of Computer Science. He is well known within the MICCAI community, having chaired several workshops and conferences (MICCAI AMI/ARCS 2008, 2009 and AE-CAI 2011, ISBMS symposium 2008, MIAR 2010) and has over 80 journal and conference publications in the field. His current work concentrates on computer vision applied to robotic surgery, with a specific interest in anatomical and tool reconstruction incorporating kinematics.
