Welcome to the AP Lab!

Lab Culture
In the AP Lab, we believe that creating an atmosphere that is inclusive of socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, gender, religion, and ethnicity brings a variety of opinions to the table and in turn generates better, more creative science. More diverse voices ensure that the scientific and technological advancements we work on can profit all members of society.  We strive to ensure that the composition of the AP Lab and the collaborations we foster reflect the diversity that exists in our society. We aim to create a culture of equality that we believe makes our lab stronger, more innovative and better placed to solve problems that will benefit society as a whole and not specific individuals.

In the AP Lab we work on developing methods to enhance perception of computer generated images. Novel visualization techniques, display devices and interaction paradigms are explored to enrich the users experience in specific scenarios and workflows. Current research topics include:

  • Augmented reality visualization
  • Enhancing depth perception of computer generated images
  • Interaction techniques for better understanding of rendered images
  • Medical image processing and visualization
  • Auditory displays and data signification
  • Gaze-based interaction and eye-tracking
  • Study of push notifications on exercise motivation
  • Gamification for studying different visualization techniques
  • Federated and machine learning in medical imaging

The lab is headed by Dr. Kersten-Oertel who is a member of the PERFORM Centre and one of the editors of the ISCAS Newsletter and Blog.

Pretending I'm in London today ... The Session on Computer Vision And Augmented Reality In Surgery @ICLHamlynRobots Symposium On Medical Robotics 2021-- Starting soon!

Join us at the Computer Vision and Augmented Reality in Surgery Workshop, part of the Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics, to listen to great keynotes by @MathiasUnberath @MartaKersten and Adrien Bartoli on 27th July! @ICLHamlynRobots @RCSnews @sharib_ox https://hamlynsymposium.org/events/computer-vision-and-augmented-reality-in-surgery/

Due to a number of requests we are extending the AE-CAI | CARE | OR 2.0 Workshop deadline to July 20th! #aecai #care #or20 #miccai2021
More info here: https://workshops.ap-lab.ca/aecai2021/

Please help me spread the news. I am looking for a Msc student with full funding to investigate #neurosurgical video processing and/or surgical data visualization/interaction. 👁️🧠 If you are interested, please send me a message!
