Dr

Hamish Meffin

 

Dr Hamish Meffin is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at The University of Melbourne and an Honorary Fellow at the National Vision Research Institute of Australia. His research interests lie in two main fields: (1) medical bionics for the treatment of neural disorders and (2) systems neuroscience that seeks to understand the processing performed by the brain.

He combines mathematical modelling and experimental electrophysiology with expertise in device development to progress these fields.
He is trained in mathematics, physics and neuroscience, and has worked in biomedical engineering and l neuroscience in cross-disciplinary institutions such as the National Vision Research Institute, The Bionics Institute, both in Australia, and The Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience, Germany. His work has contributed to the development of a retinal implant for restoring vision to blind people and to our understanding of how the brain processes information. He has co-authored over 60 publications in international journals and is a co-inventor of 7 patents.
