Andres Felipe Marmol Velez

Andres F. Marmol V. completed a BSc. in Mechatronics (2008) in Colombia with an honorific mention for his thesis in the retrofitting of a 3DoF milling machine. Afterwards, he engaged educational activities at two universities prior his relocation to Germany. At the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) he completed with honours his MSc. Mechatronics (2011) devoting his thesis to medical imaging reconstruction. Upon the completion of his studies, Andres enrolled as a research assistant at the TUHH until he  decided to turn to the industry and joined one of the leader companies in machine vision and industrial image processing: ISRA Vision AG (2012). At this German company he was in charge of the technical commissioning and maintenance of diverse vision guided robotic solutions for the car industry. After one year, he took over administrative responsibilities as on-site project manager for Mercedes Benz-South Africa and Jaguar Land Rover-UK.

He is currently pursuing his PhD degree as part of the Medical and Healthcare Robotics in the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision. His research employs the latest techniques in robotic navigation and visual servoing into the most common orthopaedic procedure in the world: Knee arthroscopy. Ultimately, Andres aims at making minimally invasive surgical procedures safer for patients, while alleviating surgeons’ current physical and mental burdens. Andres devotes his free time to various sports like tennis, inline-skating and parkour. He also sets up small microcontroller based projects and likes to play with novel electronic gadgets. He plans to fulfil a childhood dream by diving in the Australian Great Barrier Reef.
