Research interests:  
My research interests are in the areas of image-guided robotic tools and MR-guided focused ultrasound for neurological and vascular applications. Projects include development of MR-guided biopsy robotics, minimally invasive single port multi-manipulator surgical robotics for general/thoriac and neurosurgery. I am also an ad-hoc reviewer for the IEEE Intelligent Robots and Systems and International Conference on Robotics and Automation.
