RESEARCH INTERESTS:

  • Surgical robotics
  • Human-robot control interface
  • Intraoperative medical image processing
  • High-performance computing for medical applications

BIOGRAPHY:

Dr. Ka-Wai Kwok, has extensive experience in the design of various image-guided surgical robotic systems, particularly those aided by high-performance computing techniques. He gained both technical and clinical knowledge relevant to MRI-guided interventions, in his capacity as Croucher research fellow. To date, he has co-authored papers with more than 26 clinical fellows and 50 engineering scientists, and has been involved in design of various types of surgical robotic devices and interfaces for endoscopy, laparoscopy, arthroscopy and intra-cardiac catheter intervention. Numerous groups of subjects (totally >120) were invited to operate and evaluate those proposed devices and interfaces on phantom models or in animal trials, in support of their potential clinical benefits. His work has also been recognized by several awards at academic conferences, including RCAR’17, ICRA’17’14, IROS’13 and FCCM’11, Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics’08,’12.
