Two exciting high-profile researchers join the UNSW team

The Graduate School of Biomedical Engineering at UNSW welcomes two new academics: ARC Future Fellow, Dr Guozhen Liu and Professor Ewa Goldys, Deputy Director of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Nanoscale Biophotonics.

Joining us from Macquarie University in Sydney, Dr Liu will bring to the School her expertise in nanomaterials-based sensing technologies and implantable sensing devices for quantitative biomedical sciences.

During her period at AgaMatrix Inc. Dr Liu developed commercial technologies for fingerprick glucose sensing.

Dr Liu’s research at UNSW will focus on cytokine sensors, intelligent nanoparticles for sensing and for drug delivery in the brain, and on biomedical devices.

Professor Goldys is a UNSW SHARP hire under its 2025 Strategy, a strategic initiative aimed at attracting 100 world-leading scholars.

Professor Goldys’s group pioneers non-invasive fluorescence diagnostics (recognised with a Eureka award in 2016) and is active in the area of cancer nanotechnology.

Professor Goldys, also formerly from Macquarie University, collaborates widely with clinicians and with industry.

Dr Liu and Professor Goldys are inviting prospective PhD candidates to join their groups within the ARC Centre of Excellence for Nanoscale Biophotonics @ UNSW.

Together, they look forward to bringing their exciting frontier science and ongoing research excellence to our School.
