About

Veronica Penza has a M.S. degree in Biomedical Engineering from Politecnico di Milano with the thesis on “Dynamic Tool Compensation in a Bilateral Telemanipulation System for Neurosurgery”, in 2013. 

She is currently pursuing the Ph.D. degrees in bioengineering at Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT), in the Biomedical Robotics Lab, Advanced Robotics Department, in Genova. Her research topic is about the development of an enhanced vision system to improve safety in sigle port abdominal surgery. This study involved 3D reconstruction of surgical scenes, organs motion tracking and definition of active constraints. 

She was honoured with the best video award at Hamlyn Workshop on Augmented Reality and Surgical Vision on 2014.
