Weston  Ross

Weston Ross

Assistant Professor in Neurosurgery

Research Interests: My research broadly involves the development of "smart surgical systems" for a variety of surgical and medical fields.  In particular, I am interested in developing laser-based systems for imaging and tissue manipulation.  This has included projects in modeling laser photoablation, characterizing tissue vaporization with CO2 lasers, and diagnostics with fluorescent spectroscopy.  I have demonstrated automated tattoo removal with a computer-vision guided laser photoablation system.  My ongoing research efforts are aimed at broadening this work to address skin cancers both domestically and in resource-limited medical settings, particularly in India.
