Personal profile

Biography

Andrew obtained his PhD in electrical engineering from the University of Queensland (UQ) in 2004 – Thesis: “Image analysis for the study of chromatin distribution in cell nuclei with application to cervical cancer screening”. He subsequently held the positions of Research Fellow and then Senior Research Fellow in medical image analysis in the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering at UQ. From 2011 until his present appointment at UWA, he held the positions of Assistant Professor and then Associate Professor in medical image analysis jointly with the MedTech West centre (located at Sahlgrenska University Hospital, Gothenburg, Sweden) and the Department of Signals and Systems at Chalmers University of Technology.

Research

Andrew’s research interests focus on the development of image analysis methods for biomedical imaging applications involving MRI, CT and optical microscopy. Such methods include visualisation, denoising, spatial co-registration, segmentation, parametric modelling of contrast enhancement (DCE-MRI), computational diffusion MRI and classification (feature extraction, feature selection and classifier design, training and validation).

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
