Étienne Léger, Ph.D.

Profile Picture

Étienne Léger is a post-doctoral research fellow in the Golby Lab, under the joint supervision of Sarah Frisken, Ph.D. and Alexandra Golby, M.D. His work focuses on building low-cost neuronavigation tools for deployment in limited resources contexts. He is interested in new hardware integration in surgical workflows to both improve intuitiveness of the displayed guidance information, as well as lowering cost.

Previously, he completed a Ph.D. on in situ augmented reality for neurosurgery in the Applied Perception lab under the supervision of Marta Kersten-Oertel, Ph.D. He worked on building new augmented reality visualization techniques to facilitate surgical interventions. He built a tablet application communicating through OpenIGTLink to the IbisNeuronav system to generate an overlay of pre-segmented structures with the real-time camera view.

His prior experience is in computational geometry, specifically automatic detection of intersection on parametric surfaces.

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.
