Simon is a Senior Lecturer at Monash University’s Chemical Engineering Department and has relevant expertise in novel biosensor and bioassay development and evaluation. After completing his undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering and PhD in Physical Chemistry at the University of Queensland, Simon undertook postdoctoral studies at the HPV Research Laboratory at the University of Washington, Seattle. After further postdoctoral studies in Australia developing microneedle arrays for wearable immunoassays, he joined the Chemical Engineering Department at Monash University in mid-2016 to establish the Nanosensor Engineering Lab. He is a recipient of the Australian Research Council’s DECRA Award and is the Diagnostics Platform Leader at the BioPRIA Institute. His research interests lie in developing nanoparticle and protein-based materials for bio-sensing in vivo and rapid bioassays for application outside of centralised laboratories.
