Meet the researchers

A/Professor Nemai Karmakar

Fundamental and applied research in microwave engineering, antenna technologies, RFID and wireless sensors in a multi-disciplinary collaborations with materials, nono-fabrication, chemical and biomedical engineering. Core research theme: Electromagnetics and Electronics.

Professor Arthur Lowery

(1) Develop brain machine interfaces for bionic vision that stimulate the visual cortex. (2) Create photonic integrated circuits to improve reach, flexibility and energy efficiency of optical communications.

Dr. Faezeh Marzbanrad

I am passionate about health technology, saving lives and reducing healthcare costs. My research focuses on advanced signal processing, machine learning and physiological modelling to develop affordable and reliable mobile-health solutions.


Professor Malin Premaratne

I work in some of the most fundamental areas of electrical engineering including quantum-electrodynamics, charge-transport in nanostructures and photon interactions with waveguides and biological media. Applications of this work include photonics and biomedical engineering.


Dr Yan Wong
Senior Lecturer

I use cutting edge neuroscience techniques to help develop the next generation of neural prostheses. These include vision prostheses, cochlear implants and brain machine interfaces.

A/Professor Mehmet Yuce

I and my students design electronics and integrated circuit technology (IC) circuits to design sensor devices for Internet-of-Things (IoT) and healthcare applications, including wearable and implantable systems.
