Surgeons rely on their exceptional senses and masterful skills to adroitly carry out tricky procedures. But the number of doctors who possess this sort of superior technique and knowledge is limited, making it difficult to ensure that all patients get the treatment they need. In my research, I focus on finding technological solutions for providing better medical care to all. For example, using robotic, sensing and AI technology to augment a surgeon’s eyes, hands and head, producing measurable improvements in treatment outcomes. One of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is “to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages.” By finding applications for cutting-edge technology that remain clinically practical in terms of safety, scale and cost, I hope to help create a more sustainable world.
