Researcher Profiles

Mr Xiaolin Cui

HDR Student
Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences

I have worked on various engineering related projects from chemical engineering to biomedical engineering. As a result, I have fresh eyes to identity and solve problems from different angles. I am specialises in medical science, chemical engineering, process engineering, pharmaceutical engineering, polymer science, life science and material engineering. And I has relevant experience of commercial projects and fundamental research commercialisation.

Dr Nathan Watson-Haigh

Research Fellow in Bioinformatics
Faculty of Sciences

Nathan has almost 15 years experience in the field of bioinformatics with expertise in genomics, transcriptomics, system biology, phylogenetics, bioinformatics training, Linux systems administration, high-performance and cloud computing.

Luke Grundy

Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences

My research focuses on the sensory signalling of the bladder and gastrointestinal tract, and how the aberrant signalling from visceral organs is linked to the symptoms of common disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), overactive bladder (OAB) and interstitial cystitis (IC).

Dr Sean Martin

FAMAS Project Manager - Freemason Foundation
Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences

Dr Sean Martin, Post-Doctoral Research Fellow of the Freemasons Foundation Centre for Men’s Health has been awarded a prestigious Commonwealth Government Early Career Fellowship from the National Health and Medical Research Council 2015.

FAMAS Project Manager - Freemason Foundation / FAMAS Project Manager.

Dr Luke Bennetts

Senior Research Fellow
Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences

Dr Rebecca Feo

Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences

I am passionate about conducting qualitative research that has the potential to generate practical outcomes related to health and well-being. My research expertise involves employing the qualitative approach of Conversation Analysis to examine real-life, naturally occurring interactions, particularly related to the provision of healthcare and advice. I am also highly experienced in a range of other qualitative approaches. My current postdoctoral research focuses on improving the delivery of fundamental nursing care within the acute healthcare system.

Xiao Liu

Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences

Xiao Liu received her Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical and Electronic Engineering with first class honors from the University of Adelaide in 2015. She is currently a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Adelaide with a focus on sleep study related biomedical signal processing.

Professor Jozef Gecz

Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences

Jozef Gecz is Australian NH&MRC Senior Principal Research Fellow and Professor of Human Genetics at the University of Adelaide. He is the founding head of the Neurogenetics Research Program located at the Adelaide Women's and Children's Hospital. The broad research aim of his group is to further understanding of brain function through the identification and characterisation of genes with naturally occurring mutations in patients with intellectual disability, autism, some, primarily monogenic, forms of epilepsy and cerebral palsy.

Dr Michael Evans

Research Associate
Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences

Dr Michael Evans is a Research Associate in the School of Mechanical Engineering at The University of Adelaide, having completed his Ph.D. (with a Dean's Commendation for Doctoral Thesis Excellence) in 2017 and Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical and Aerospace) and Bachelor of Science (Theoretical and Experimental Physics) with 1st class Honours in 2013. Michael's Ph.D. research focussed on the differences in, and transition between, conventional and MILD (moderate or intense low oxygen dilution) combustion.
