Lin Zhang Portrait

Lin Zhang

I am a research assistant within the Hamlyn Centre for Robotic Surgery, Imperial College London. My PhD was accomplished in the Hamlyn Centre where I was advised by Prof. Guang-Zhong Yang. My research interests include surgical vision, robotic surgery, visual servoing, image-guided intervention and machine learning.
