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.
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).
