Simulation and Modelling in Medicine and Surgery
Professor Fernando Bello is a computer scientist and engineer working at the intersection of medicine, education and technology. He is currently the Director of the Centre for Engagement and Simulation Science, leading the SiMMS – Simulation and Modelling in Medicine and Surgery research group. A multi-disciplinary research group aiming at building suitable models and simulations of clinical processes, including clinical examination, clinical diagnosis, interventional procedures and care pathways. Prof Bello is particularly interested in the use of virtual / mixed reality environments and haptics in the context of education and training, pioneering advanced patient specific simulation of a number of surgical procedures and clinical examinations, online and mobile simulation tools, as well as innovative approaches to contextualised simulation. He has published widely in technological, medical and educational journals, is involved in several simulation-based training programmes in the UK and abroad and is Academic Co-director of Imperial’s MSc in Surgical Innovation.
