Personal profile

Biography

I have a BEng (2005) and PhD (2009), both in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Limerick, Ireland. I am Head of Vascular Engineering ( Vasclab ) at the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research and Senior Lecturer in the School of Mechanical and Chemical Engineering at UWA. I am also a NHMRC RD Wright Biomedical Fellow, since 2014 and Honorary Fellow of the University of Edinburgh since 2010.
My research focusses primarily on cardiovascular health and disease, and my group uses cutting-edge engineering techniques to improve patient outcomes across a range of cardiovascular areas such as aneurysms, dissection, coronary artery disease, placenta vasculature and retinal vasculature.
I am a founding member of the BioZone – a WA initiative aimed at convergent science to accelerate discovery and translation in biomedical and bioengineering research. In 2016, I took over the leadership (with Brendan Kennedy and Tim Sercombe) of the Faculty of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics Bioengineering Network and most recently relocated my group to the Perkins to establish the Biomedical Engineering@Perkins initiative.

Roles and responsibilities

Editor: "Cardiovascular Biomechanics" (Springer). New textbook to be published in 2017.

Editor: "Computational Biomechanics for Medicine" book series (Springer).

Chair: Computational Biomechanics for Medicine Workshop (in association with MICCAI). Annual event since 2005 - held in Nagoya, Japan (2013); MIT, Boston (2014); TU Munich, Germany (2015); Quebec, Canada (2017).

Guest-Editor: International Journal of Numerical Methods in Biomedical Engineering - special issue (2013).

Guest-Editor: Australasian Physical & Engineering Sciences in Medicine - special issue (2017).

Active reviewer for Australian Research Council (ARC), National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), Health Research Council of New Zealand, National Institute of Health Research (NIHR), Czech Science Foundation and the Austrian Science Fund.

Active reviewer for over 30 clinical and engineering journals, such as Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology (IF=6.3), Journal of the Royal Society Interface (IF=4.9) and Annals of Biomedical Engineering (IF=3.2).
