Current Professional Experience:
Lead Investigator in tissue property measurement and modeling. Developer,
electro-mechanical systems for medical/surgical trainers
Dr. Mark Ottensmeyer graduated from McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario,
Canada in 1994, summa cum laude, in mechanical engineering and management.
He received a masters and Ph.D. from M.I.T. in 1996 and 2001, respectively.
His masters work focused on developing a teleoperated laparoscopy system
for examining the effects of long distance time lag on surgeon performance,
while the Ph.D. work led to the development of a minimally invasive instrument
for measuring solid organ mechanical properties. He has been working as
a Lead investigator in the Simulation Group at CIMIT since that time,
continuing the measurement of tissue properties, and developing hardware
systems for the Simulation Group medical/surgical trainers.
