I am a Research Associate for Laparoscopic Liver Surgery, working with Dr. Matthew J. Clarkson at WEISS (Wellcome / EPSRC Centre for Interventional and Surgical Sciences), University College London (UCL), U.K. My current research concerns the development of an image guidance system for the laparoscopic liver surgery using Augmented Reality (AR). I am also working on how to train deep neural networks with very limited amounts of labelled data, and how to utilise synthetic data more effectively. Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow, working with Dr. Erol Özgür and Prof. Adrien Bartoli in EnCoV at Université Clermont Auvergne, France. I obtained a Ph.D. in Computer Science supervised by Prof. Niloy J. Mitra in Smart Geometry Processing Group at UCL. Before that, I obtained an M.Sc. in Computer Graphics, Vision and Imaging, also at UCL.
