Personal profile


I have a BEng (2005) and PhD (2009), both in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Limerick, Ireland. I am Head of the Vascular Engineering Laboratory (VascLab) at the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research and Associate Professor in the School of Engineering at UWA. I am also an Honorary Fellow at the British Heart Foundation Centre for Cardiovascular Science at University of Edinburgh since 2010. 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 Master of Professional Engineering in Biomedical Engineering and am the inaugural Program Chair since 2018. I am also one of the founding members of the BioZone.

My 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 biofabrication techniques to develop novel devices for both cardiovascular disease and musculoskeletal disease. I have been awarded over $11 million in funding as lead or co-lead for the research we do at VascLab.

I am also co-founder and CTO of Flomatrix Pty Ltd.
