Alberto Rota, MSc

Biomedical Engineer

Research Areas: Surgical Robotics & Computer Vision, Surgical Workload Prediction

Leonardo Robotics Labs, Polimi Campus Leonardo, 20133, Milan, Italy

+02 2399 9013

Alberto received his MSc in Biomedical Engineering in December 2022 with a thesis on surgical robotics and haptic assistance strategies in surgical simulated training environments. He is pursuing a PhD in Bioengineering in collaboration with Asensus Surgical Inc. since 2023, where he works on digital solutions for enhanced surgical awareness

3D Reconstruction for Enhanced Surgical Awareness

Alberto works on the 3D reconstruction of surgical intraop environments from endoscopic images, exploiting Deep Learning for Computer Vision. A 3D reconstruction of the surgical space allows for increased awareness for the surgeon and the robot in the intraoperative phase, which ultimately benefits patient’s safety and procedure efficacy
