Tom Vercauteren

I am currently Professor of Interventional Image Computing at King's College London (KCL) within the School of Biomedical Engineering & Imaging Sciences (BMEIS). I am also a honorary Associate Professor at University College London (UCL) and Guest Professor at KU Leuven.

Prior to this, I was Associate Professor at UCL where I acted as Deputy Director for the Wellcome / EPSRC Centre for Interventional and Surgical Sciences (WEISS). Before my academic career, I have been working for Mauna Kea Technologies where as New Technologies Manager to identify emerging technologies and support their acquisition within the company. There, I have led the company image computing group which I initially joined as PhD student and then helped make it grow as research engineer.

I received my PhD, co-supervised by Nicholas Ayache and Xavier Pennec at the Asclepios Project-Team in Inria Sophia Antipolis, in 2008 from Ecole des Mines de Paris. I obtained my Master of Science in Electrical Engineering at Columbia University in 2004 and graduated from Ecole Polytechnique in 2003.
