Electrical and Computer Engineering
Master of Applied Science (MASc) student at the University of British Columbia specializing in Biomedical Technologies. Working as a Graduate Research Assistant at the Robotics and Control Laboratory (RCL), I have a keen interest in the fields of surgical robotics and image processing.
Over the past year at the RCL, I have worked closely with the da Vinci Surgical System (Intuitive Surgical, Inc, CA) and the da Vinci Research Kit (dVRK). Besides becoming extremely familiar with the surgical robotics setup, I have also gained valuable research skills through the course of my numerous projects. System prototyping, exhaustive experimental design, and experience conducting user studies are few of the skills acquired during my time here. I also frequently collaborate with my colleagues to publish papers in top journals and conferences.
I'm passionate about my work, and seek out projects that I see a direct commercial value in. It's important to gather feedback from targeted audiences and incorporate that in the product design cycle. Thanks to existing collaborations between UBC and the Vancouver General Hospital (VGH), we at RCL get the opportunity to engage in eye-opening discussions with surgeons that will eventually use our solutions in the operating theatre. I look forward to working with a company that places the same importance and value on customer feedback.
Looking forward from here, I seek full-time positions in 2020 where I can showcase and further fine-tune these skills.
