Program Leader, Electrical Stimulation Strategy
Bionic Vision Australia
Professor Lovell is a professor at the Graduate School of Biomedical Engineering at the University of New South Wales. His expertise ranges from biomedical instrumentation and biological signal processing to neurophysiology and physiological modeling. Over his career he has been awarded over $25 million in research, consultancy and infrastructure funding. In late 2010, Professor Lovell was appointed to the position of Scientia Professor at the University of New South Wales, a prestigious appointment in recognition of outstanding research performance and professionalism.
Professor Lovell’s principal research interests lie in the application of appropriate technology to primary healthcare, particularly to the design of an electronic vision prosthesis.
Contribution to bionic eye project
Professor Lovell leads the electrical stimulation strategy program. The goal of the program is to design, test and validate algorithms for transforming information from the visual scene into patterns of electrical stimulation and to assess how these stimulation approaches equate to visual perception.
BE (Hons) (Electrical Engineering) (UNSW), PhD (Cardiac Neurophysiology) (UNSW)
Professor Lovell has published hundreds of journal articles, books, chapters, patents, refereed proceedings and abstracts.
