Miscellaneous Information

I am currently a Research Associate working on Image Guided Laparoscopic Surgery, with emphases on laparoscope and laparoscopic ultrasound (LUS) probe hand-eye calibration and LUS / CT registration.

 I obtained a PhD degree in Medical Image Processing in 2001 from the University of Oxford, under the supervision of Prof. Sir Mike Brady and Prof. Alison Noble. My thesis is titled "3-D free-hand ultrasound imaging and image analysis of the breast”.
