Emily is a postdoctoral research fellow in the Graduate School of Biomedical Engineering. She received a Bachelor of Biomedical Engineering and a Bachelor of Science from Flinders University in 2007, graduating with first class Honours. She then completed her PhD in 2012 at the University of Melbourne where she was part of the team at Bionic Vision Australia who developed a bionic eye to restore vision to blind individuals. Emily then returned to Flinders University in 2012 and completed a postdoctoral fellowship with the Medical Devices Research Institute where she developed an electronic device to assist with mobility for blind individuals and led a study in preventing fibrosis around silicone breast implants using laser therapy. Emily commenced her current postdoctoral role at UNSW in 2017. 

Emily's research interests span engineering and biology in models to treat blindness and breast cancer. She uses a combination of device development, cell biology and imaging methods in her research.
