Developing a Macro-Micro Teleoperation system with Snake robots for Minimally Invasive Surgeries

Since his final year of Mechatronics engineering, Andrew has been working on snake-like robots for surgical applications, which he graduated in 2017. He pursued a PhD focusing on designing new snake-like end-effectors to adapt the Raven II surgical robot for new surgical applications such as knee arthroscopy. Andrew’s interests include manipulator control, optimisation, evolution algorithms and control with robotic vision.
