Andres F. Marmol V. completed a BSc. in Mechatronics (2008) in Colombia with an honorific mention for his thesis in the retrofitting of a 3DoF milling machine. Afterwards, he engaged educational activities at two universities prior his relocation to Germany. At the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) he completed with distinction his MSc. Mechatronics (2011) devoting his thesis to medical imaging reconstruction. Upon the completion of his studies, Mr. Marmol enrolled as a research assistant at the TUHH until he decided to turn to industry and joined one of the world-leading companies in machine vision and industrial image processing: ISRA Vision AG (2012). At this German company he was in charge of the technical commissioning and maintenance of diverse vision-guided robotic solutions for the car industry. After one year, he took over administrative responsibilities as on-site project manager for Mercedes Benz-South Africa and Jaguar Land Rover-UK. Mr. Marmol is currently pursuing his PhD degree as part of the QUT team in the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision. His PhD research is focused on robotic knee arthroscopy, developing a vision-guided robotic system to assist doctors during strenuous surgical procedures.
