Personal profile

Biography

Andrew received first class honours from Griffith University, completing his Bachelor of Electronic and Computer Engineering in 2015. Following that, Andrew began his PhD, where he investigated control of artificial hearts using novel implantable fibre optic sensors. Andrew was awarded his PhD in March 2019 and is now a Research Fellow at Monash University. Andrew is currently investigating the improvement of Mechanical Cardio and Respiratory Support Devices through advanced sensors, monitoring, and control practices. Andrew is based full-time at the Alfred Hospital's Baker Institute of Heart and Diabetes Research Facility. https://www.monashcreatelab.com/
