David is a Lecturer in the Biomedical Engineering Department at the University of Melbourne. His research interests are in developing systems for advanced bioprinting, using novel micromanipulation methods to span the length scales from the single-cell environment to the macro-scale structure.
David has expertise in integrated actuation methods in microfluidic systems, with applications for pattering and sorting of microspecimens. He is engaged in collaborations across four continents.
Ongoing Research Projects Include:
3D Bioprinting - Engineering the single cell microenvironment
Bioprocess Engineering - High throughput micro-scale separations science
