Brief biography

I recently completed my PhD at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) Australia, and have a passion for understanding and developing ways in which humans interact with new technologies, specifically medical robotic systems. Prior to completing my PhD I worked as a Mechatronic Engineer in a variety of industry postions, from developing robotic platforms used by the Australian Defence Force to radar-based safety accesories for vehicles. I enjoy hands-on research that allows me to utilise all of my skill sets, and provide new possibilities to end users.

The research I do at UCLiC involves working with a variety of clinicians on varying projects to help identify limitations and frustrations in their practices, and then to work alongside the clincians and engineers in developing solutions. This in turn allows clinicians to perform their tasks more effectively, which should result in better patient outcomes.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, creating with Lego, bike riding, camping, hiking, and playing board games.
