Mathias Unberath is an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science, and is affiliated with the Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics and the Malone Center for Engineering in Healthcare. He created and leads the Advanced Robotics and Computationally Augmented Environments research group.Unberath’s research consolidates efforts in computer vision, medical physics, and medicine to develop surgeon-centric, end-to-end computer-assisted solutions for image-guided surgery. Currently, he is particularly interested in advancing interventional image processing to tailor image acquisition and augmented reality environments to the clinical task.

He holds a BS in physics, an MS in optical technologies, and a Ph.D. in computer science from the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, where he graduated summa cum laude in 2017. He was an ERASMUS scholar at the University of Eastern Finland in 2011 and DAAD fellow at Stanford University throughout 2014.

Unberath was a postdoctoral fellow in the Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics at Johns Hopkins University working on various topics in the realm of image-guided surgery before joining the faculty as an assistant research professor in 2018.
