My research focuses on image guided therapy. With an ultimate goal of technology transfer, I aim to address unmet needs in minimally invasive image guided interventions through the design and development of novel medical systems and devices followed by their preclinical and clinical evaluation. Specific areas of interest are: image guided cardiovascular interventions, medical imaging instrumentation, medical systems and devices, medical robotics and mechatronics.
