WORK HISTORY

1995-now Johns Hopkins Univ. Professor of Computer Science, with joint appointments in Radiology, Surgery and Mechanical Engineering
Director of NSF Engineering Research Center on Computer-Integrated Surgical Systems and Technology. Current research interests include: computer-integrated planning and robotic delivery of optimized patterns of localized therapy; steady-hand augmentation of microsurgery and endoscopic surgery; image-guided orthopaedic surgery; medical imaging, modeling, and registration; and human-machine systems.
1990-1995 IBM Research Manager of Computer Assisted Surgery Group
Technical direction and leadership for research group (5 PhD's, 1 Engineer, 1 coop student) in medical robotics and computer assisted surgery. Specific activities included orthopaedics, craniofacial surgery, image guided telerobotic systems for minimally invasive surgery, and image-based modeling and analysis. Set strategy and research agenda, contributed key technical ideas, participated/led in implementations and negotiated relations with outside organizations. Led successful effort to secure $2M NIST ATP support for a joint IBM/Integrated Surgical Systems project to develop system for revision hip replacement surgery, and subsequently was principal investigator for IBM’s part of the project.1)
1989-1990 IBM Research Research Staff Member/Project Leader
Developed “Robodoc” a robotic system for precise orthopaedic surgery, and transferred it to clinical collaborators at the University of California at Davis and, subsequently, to a startup company (Integrated Surgical Systems, Inc..) for commercial development. This system is now marketed in Europe and is pending FDA approval in the US. Also, established a broader research program on medical robotics and human-machine augmentation and initiated joint work on craniofacial surgery with NYU.
1) Later was PI for Johns Hopkins' part when the project was expanded to include Johns Hopkins after I left IBM to join JHU.
