Assistant Professor

About Me

Momen Abayazid received his M.Sc. in Biomedical Engineering at Delft University of Technology 2010 and his PhD in surgical robotics at the University of Twente, 2015. In 2015, Momen Abayazid has been a postdoctoral research fellow Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston MA, USA. He worked on several projects related to robotic image-guided needle insertion and motion compensation using machine learning. Since 2017 he has been faculty member as an assistant professor in the Robotics and Mechatronics group (RaM). He is involved in different projects related to Robotics for medical applications, Soft Robotics and image-guided interventions. He is also involved in teaching BSc and MSc courses such as Signals, Image processing and computer vision.
