Danilo Gasques, M.S.

Hello! I am a Computer Science Ph.D. Candidate at UC San Diego (Weibel Lab / Design Lab).

My main research focus is on improving remote and co-located surgical mentoring and training through eXtended Reality technology.

In my research, I use mixed methods to better understand user goals, co-design with stakeholders, and evaluate and explain interventions. I also develop prototypes, tools, and systems. For example, tools to facilitate the rapid-prototyping of Augmented Reality applications.

As of 2020, I am excited to share that my research is supported by an Intuitive Surgical Ph.D. Research Fellowship.

Please, reach out to me at: gasques@ucsd.edu
