2012 - now: Smart Laparoscopic Liver Resection: Integrated Image Guidance and Tissue Discrimination.

Funded by: Wellcome Trust and Department of Health

Aim to develop a complete image guidance system for laparoscopic liver resection. Developed novel stereo reconstruction method, surgical planning tools and instrument tracking technology.


2010 - 2012: NifTK - A Translational Software Platform

Funded by: The NIHR Biomedical Research Centre at UCL/UCLH

Led the development of the NifTK platform. Collaborated with the Institute of Neurology, Dementia Research Centre and other groups within UCL. Now platform continues under the BRC High Impact InitiativeFetal Surgery grant, and Wellcome Trust / HICF funded projects on Epilepsy Surgery Planning and Smart Laparoscopic Liver Resection.


2008 - 2010: Imaging Bio-Markers for Alzheimer's Disease

Funded by: the Technology Strategy Board

Collaboration between CMIC (Prof. Ourselin), UCL Dementia Research Centre (Prof. Nick Fox) and IXICO Ltd. to develop more accurate bio-markers for Alzheimers Disease. Assessed scanner related changes, improved the robustness of whole brain atrophy measurement, developed new methods for automatically measuring hippocampal volume change and compared cortical thickness methods. 

In addition, at the Dementia Research Centre, studied the patterns of thickness change in the cortex during ADAD and frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD) and semantic dementia, progressive non-fluent aphasia and logophenic/phonological aphasia
