Sarvesh Periyasamy, PhD
Position title: Graduate Research Assistant, PhD
Sarvesh completed his BS and MS in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Wisconsin with a focus in medical imaging. He joined the Medical Scientist Training Program (MD/PhD program) at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health in 2015. He has graduated with his PhD in Biomedical Engineering and is currently in his fourth year of medical school. He works in the Image-Guided Interventions Lab under the mentorship of Dr. Paul Laeseke (Radiology) and Dr. Michael Speidel (Medical Physics). His doctoral work focuses on the development of novel C-arm based image guidance techniques for interventional radiology (IR), including quantitative angiography for vascular procedures, device navigation for ablation modalities, and motion-compensation techniques for intra-procedural imaging. Sarvesh has worked with the Histotripsy/Lee group since 2019, with a particular focus on integrating C-arm and cone-beam CT into histotripsy treatments. He will be pursuing interventional radiology residency when he graduates medical school and envisions a career integrating translational biomedical engineering and medical physics research as a physician-scientist within the field of IR.
