Michael is an entrepreneur and a scientist focusing on the development and clinical translation of computational hyperspectral imaging for real-time surgical guidance.
He is a Royal Academy of Engineering Enterprise Fellow and co-founder & CEO of Hypervision Surgical Ltd where he develops an AI-powered imaging system to equip neurosurgeons with intelligent vision to reliably identify tumour and healthy brain structures to improve surgical precision and patient safety during brain tumour surgery.
In 2019, he received his PhD degree in medical image computing from University College London, UK, for his work on volumetric MRI reconstruction from 2D slices in the presence of motion. His developed framework NiftyMIC is used as a clinical research tool at numerous hospitals and leading academic institutions in various countries including the UK, US, Belgium, Austria, Italy, Spain, and China. Prior to this, he was at the Advanced Development group at Medtronic, Louisville, Colorado, where he worked on image fusion techniques for improved interventional navigation in spine surgery in addition to the development of deep learning-based applications. In 2014, he received his MSc degree in applied mathematics from TU Vienna, Austria.
