Personal profile

Biography

Jinao Zhang is a Research Fellow with the Bio-mechatronics, Robotics and Automated Systems (BmRAS) lab at the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Monash University, Australia, where he was previously a Senior Research Officer. Before joining Monash, he worked as a Research Assistant at the School of Engineering, RMIT University, Australia. He holds a PhD (Mechanical & Manufacturing Engineering) from RMIT University for his work on real-time simulation of soft tissue deformation for surgical simulation and a Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical Engineering) with Honours 1st class from the same university. His research interests include soft tissue deformable modelling, bio-heat transfer, surgical simulation, real-time computation and robot-assisted surgery. His current research is in the real-time thermo-mechanical modelling of soft tissue for robot-assisted thermo-therapeutic cancer treatment.
