Personal profile


I am currently Program Head of Cardiovascular Science & Diabetes and also Lab Head of the Vascular Engineering Laboratory (VascLab) at the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research. I am also Associate Professor in the School of Engineering at UWA and an Honorary Fellow at the British Heart Foundation Centre for Cardiovascular Science at University of Edinburgh.

I have a BEng (2005) and PhD (2009) both in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Limerick, Ireland. I am a previous recipient of a Marie-Curie Fellowship (2010-12), UWA Research Fellowship (2012-14) and NHMRC Career Development Fellowship (2014-18). I co-developed and established the Biomedical Engineering teaching programs at UWA and was the inaugural Program Chair from 2018-21. I am also one of the founding members of the BioZone.

I am on the Editorial Board of Medical Engineering & Physics; Bioprinting; Journal of Endovascular Therapy; and European Journal of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery (2018-21). I review for national and international funding agencies, external Masters and PhD programs, as well as for over 30 different leading journals.

I am lucky to work with an amazing group of engineers, scientists and clinicians, and we have been awarded over 50 local and international prizes for our work. Most notably, winning the international Mimics Innovation Award three times (2009, 2017, 2018). We have been awarded over $11 million in funding as lead or co-lead for the research we do at VascLab.

Our research focusses primarily on cardiovascular health and disease, and my group uses cutting-edge engineering techniques to better understand disease and improve patient outcomes across a range of cardiovascular areas such as aneurysms, dissection, coronary artery disease, placenta vasculature and retinal vasculature. More recently, my team is working on new biomaterials and biofabrication techniques to develop novel devices for both cardiovascular disease and musculoskeletal disease.
