Guoyan Zheng is the Head of the Computer Assisted Orthopaedic Surgery Group at the Institute for Surgical Technology and Biomechanics of the University of Bern, Bern, Switzerland. He received his Ph.D. degree in biomedical engineering from the same university in 2002. After graduation, he continued his research on developing and applying new medical image computation methods for computer-assisted interventions. He invented a method for reconstructing a patient-specific surface model from two calibrated X-ray images. Based on his work on recovering distal locking holes from calibrated fluoroscopic images, he won the Best Paper award in the 2006 annual conference of the International Society for Computer-Assisted Orthopaedic Surgery. In 2010, Zheng received the venia docendi from the University of Bern. His current research interests include fluoroscopy image calibration and processing, statistical model-based segmentation and reconstruction, 2D/3D intensity- and feature-based registration, endoscopy-based tracking and referencing, and computer-assisted interventions. He worked as a reviewer for various high-impact conferences and journals. He is a Member of the IEEE, the CAOS-International, and the MICCAI Society.
