Nazim Haouchine, Ph.D.


I am currently a Post-doctoral Research Associate working with Sarah Frisken within the Surgical Planning Lab (Boston, MA), a unit of Harvard Medical School and the Radiology Department of Brigham and Women's Hospital.
My research work focuses on image-guided simulation, augmented reality for deformable objects and 3D shape recovery of non-rigid surfaces with an application to surgery.

Before joining the Surgical Planning Lab I was a Post-doctoral Research Fellow at Inria Strasbourg (France), within the Mimesis Group working with Stephane Cotin with whom I maintain an active collaboration.

I prepared my Ph.D. on augmented reality for hepatic surgery using soft-tissue simulation at Inria Lille and Nancy (France) under the supervision of Marie-odile Berger, Jeremie Dequidt and Stephane Cotin. I originally studied computer science and graduated from the University of Algiers (Algeria) and the University of Lille (France).

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
