Momen Abayazid received his M.Sc. in Biomedical Engineering at Delft University of Technology 2010. During his studies he did several internships at VU, Amsterdam AMC, Amsterdam and Philips Healthcare, Eindhoven. He received 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 percutaneous needle insertion and motion compensation using Machine Learning. The research is performed in a multidisciplinary environment where he developed techniques with industrial collaborators (Canon USA) and perform pre-clinical and clinical studies in Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Since 2017 he has been faculty member as 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. Currently, he is a member of the Educational Quality Committee of Bachelor program of electrical engineering at the University of Twente. He is also a reviewer of archival journals in robotics and biomedical engineering such as IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, Medical Engineering and Physics, International Journal of Computer-Assisted Radiology and Surgery (IJCARS), IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging, and also international IEEE conferences such as ICRA, IROS and BIOROB.
