Benjamin D. Killeen
A Ph.D. Student at Johns Hopkins University, I am interested in intelligent surgical systems based on explorative computer vision and deep reinforcement learning that directly improve patient outcomes. I am a member of the Advanced Robotics and Computationally Augmented Environments (ARCADE) research group, led by Mathias Unberath and the Computational Interaction and Robotics Laboratory (CIRL), led by Gregory D. Hager.
In 2019, I completed my undergraduate education at the University of Chicago, receiving a B.A. in Computer Science with Honors and a minor in Physics, advised by Gordon Kindlmann. I have also been fortunate enough to intern with IBM Research under Geoffrey Burr, Epic Systems in Cognitive Computing, and Intuitive Surgical under Omid Mohareri.
In my spare time, I pursue creative writing. For some recent examples, please see my blog.
