Babak Matinfar Ph.D. (May-July 2013)

Babak is a member of the Surgical Planning Laboratory, working on image-guided therapy systems. He is interested in the application of robotics and intervening systems in the medical field, and understanding the interactions between medical imaging and adaptive treatment delivery in real-time for precise therapy.

He received the B.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from Tehran University. After working for three years in the automotive industry, he enrolled in the Electrical Engineering M.Sc. program at Queen’s University in 2002, where he received the Ontario Graduate Scholarship to perform research in the area of robotics and system control. In September 2005, Babak started his Ph.D. at the Johns Hopkins University Center for Computer Integrated Surgery under the supervision of Dr. Kazanzides to work on the Small Animal Radiation Platform (SARRP). His research was focused on the calibration of the SARRP and moved towards creating complex volumetric dose shapes in a small animal. His papers in this field were accepted in the Journal of Physics in Medicine and Biology (2009) and the International Conference of Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention (2007, 2008).
