Profile

Terry Peters' interest in engineering as a teenager led him to study Electrical Engineering at the University of Canterbury in NZ. Upon entering graduate school, his advisor asked him to embark on a project to reconstruct cross-sectional images from x-rays. This topic (now known as CT scanning) provided the ideal bridge between engineering and medicine. This work ultimately led him to an academic position at McGill University and the Montreal Neurological Institute, where he had the opportunity to work with surgeons to apply engineering and imaging technology to guide surgeons during neurosurgery procedures. Terry's subsequent move from Montreal to London and the Robarts, allowed him to expand his interests in combining imaging and surgery beyond the brain. Currently, programs exist in his lab dealing with cardiac and urological surgery in addition to the brain.
