Dr Ziyan Guo
Ziyan received B.Eng in vehicle engineering from Tsinghua University and pursued PhD in surgical robotics in IRIS group at The University of Hong Kong. Her research interests involve surgical robots, image-guided interventions, and magnetic resonance-compatible devices. She was awarded the MIT Technology Review Innovators Under 35 (MIT TR Innovators under 35) for developing an intraoperative MRI-guided robot for bilateral stereotactic neurosurgery. Her work was also recognised in several prestigious awards, including Best Conference Paper Award in ICRA’18 (the largest robotics conference), First Place Prize Paper Award in TPEL 2017, and Best Live Demonstration Prize in Surgical Robot Challenge 2016, etc.
