Biography

I received a Bachelor of Engineering with First Class Honours specialising in Mechatronics from the University of Auckland in 2013. Following my graduation, I joined Fisher & Paykel as a Graduate Mechanical Product Development Engineer.

A year later, I came back to the University on a part-time basis to work in the ABI on the Needle-free Jet Injector, towards a Master of Engineering.

I am also working at 3i Innovation on Inductive Power and Data Transfer (IPT/IPDT) technology to financially support my pursuit of a career in electronics and medical devices.
 

Thesis

Electronic control system for large-volume injection system

Robust, high-performance voice coil actuators created by the ABI can be used to generate short pulses of very high force for their size. To date, the ABI has developed electronics systems to power the voice coil actuator for needle-free drug delivery purpose. However, new methods for the needle-free delivery of large drug volumes require longer pulse durations than the current portable system can provide. The proposed development of this project is to create a portable control apparatus that is appropriate for these new tasks.
