Giulio Dagnino is a Research Associate at the Hamlyn Centre for Robotic Surgery, Imperial College London, UK, working on robot-assisted endovascular intervention technologies. He received his MSc in Biomedical Engineering in 2007 at the University of Genoa, Italy. He graduated with a PhD in Medical Robotics from the Italian Institute of Technology in 2013, with a dissertation on new technologies for robot-assisted laser microsurgery. He joined the Bristol Robotics Laboratory, Bristol, UK in 2013 as a postdoctoral Research Fellow working on robot-assisted fracture surgery (RAFS). Previous subjects include:
- vision-based control of a robotic manipulator for laser phonomicrosurgery, and in-situ lesion detection - within the EU-funded µRALP project.
- Real-time vision-based position control, force control, 3D modelling of fractures from CT data, image registration, path planning, user interfaces, system integration, cadaveric trials - within the NIHR-funded RAFS project.
Dr Dagnino's main research interests are in medical imaging and robotics, including medical image processing, surgical systems design and prototyping, integration, and translation into clinical environments.
Dr Dagnino serves as a reviewer in numerous research conferences and journals (including ICRA, IPCAI, IJCARS) and review editor in "Biomedical Robotics" - Frontiers in Robotics and AI. He is Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, and member of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society.
