I am currently a PhD student at the University College London (UCL) EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Medical and Biomedical Imaging. I am part of the Translational Imaging Group (TIG) led by Sebastien Ourselin and also member of the Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering department.
My PhD work is tied to the fetal surgery project supported by the Image-Guided Intrauterine Minimally Invasive Fetal Diagnosis and Therapy grant funded by Wellcome Trust and EPSRC. This research project is being carried out in collaboration with KU Leuven. Within the fetal surgery project my work is supervised by Prof. Sebastien Ourselin and Dr. Tom Vercauteren and it is focused on 3D Image Reconstruction of Photoacoustic and Optical US images for Image-guided Fetal Surgery.
In the past I have worked on 'Optical Tracking for Smart Hand-Held Microsurgical Devices'. This research was part of myMaster of Research in Medical Robotics and Image-Guided Intervention (2014) at the Hamlyn Centre for Robotic Surgery,Imperial College London. Previously I received my BSc in Computer Science (2010) and MSc in Computer Science (2012) from University of La Laguna in the Canary Islands. During my MSc I was also an exchange student at University of Hertfordshire (2012).
My current research insterests are: Image-guided fetal surgery, Biomedical Image Computing and Image Registration. However, I am also interested in Medical Robotics and Robotics in general as well as in any computing related field.
