About the speakers:


Mohit Shivdasani      
Associate Professor in Bionics and Neuromodulation, University of New South Wales
Assoc. Prof. Mohit Shivdasani has a Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering, a Master’s degree in Electronic Engineering and PhD in Neuroscience. Shivdasani’s expertise lies in Bionics, specifically devices that use electrical stimulation to treat various sensory and neurological diseases. His PhD was on the evaluation of a new auditory brainstem implant to treat deafness. For his postdoctoral work, Shivdasani was a key member of a multidisciplinary team responsible for the design and preclinical testing of Australia’s first prototype bionic eye, which progressed through clinical trials and is now in the process of being commercialised.  In 2018, he joined UNSW’s Graduate School of Biomedical Engineering and currently leads several research programs that aim to develop new devices for vision loss, chronic pain and more recently, inflammatory bowel disease. Shivdasani also coordinates and teaches a course in Bionics and Neuromodulation that is taken by postgraduate engineering students.


Richard Vickery        
Associate Professor, University of New South Wales      
Assoc. Prof. Richard Vickery is a researcher and educator in the School of Biomedical Sciences, Medicine & Health, UNSW Sydney. His research is focused on understanding the internal language of the brain: its neural code, to enable us to improve brain-machine interfaces such as a bionic hand. His inspirational teaching, using a mix of online resources, practical classes, and gamified experiences that leverage the power of fun and wonder, was recognised with a Vice-Chancellor’s Award for Teaching Excellence. He was Director of Teaching in the School for seven years, in which time he fostered a collaborative culture of innovation and commitment to continual improvement in education.
