    Monash Profile: https://www.monash.edu/engineering/simoncorrie


    I'm thrilled to have launched the NEL at Monash University in 2016. My passion is in designing new tools for measuring and monitoring dynamic biological processes, focusing on unique problems that are yet to be solved. After completing my undergraduate training in chemical engineering I switched to physical chemistry for my PhD - always with a focus on designing bioassays and devices. I moved to Seattle to develop rapid genotyping assays for DNA methylation analysis and HPV genotyping (Prof Nancy Kiviat). I then moved back to Australia and spent the next 6 years working on "wearable immunoassays" for selectively capturing circulating disease proteins via the skin (Prof Mark Kendall). My PhD advisor once told me to look at where the field is going, and go another way! If you are looking for a unique challenge, and you are interested in working at the interfaces between engineering and biology, research and industry, then consider joining us as a student (undergraduate, intern, Honours, Masters, PhD) or postdoc.
