I am head of the Bioengineering Imaging Group at The University Adelaide, and am also Managing Director of the start-up company, Miniprobes. My team invent new optical devices to help doctors, physiologists and livestock producers. I currently lead a research team addressing two key challenges: developing non-invasive tools to assess blood flow; and developing highly miniaturised imaging probes, small enough to be encased within hypodermic needles. My team of engineers, physicists and computer scientists is based in the ARC Centre of Excellence for Nanoscale Biophotonics and is part of the Institute for Photonics and Advanced Sensing.

After three years as a researcher at the University of Oxford, I spent five years in the medical imaging industry, including as a Product Manager with Siemens Medical Solutions. I was responsible for the development of three medical devices, two with FDA regulatory approval.

Returning to academia in 2007, I have focused on the development of optical imaging technologies, particularly optical coherence tomography and fluorescence. I have been awarded over $10M in research grants. With 16 years of research experience, I have a Google Scholar h-index of 39. I have co-authored 2 book chapters, 7 patents and 88 journal papers. I received the 2014 WA Innovator of the Year Award, and the 2015 Australian Innovation Challenge. In 2016, I was awarded the prestigious South Australian Premier’s Research and Industry Fund Research Fellowship.

In 2014, I was appointed as a Councillor of the Australian Optical Society. In 2016, I was appointed Chair of Biophotonics at the University of Adelaide.
