Current Biomedical Engineering Academic Staff


Professor Karen Reynolds - 1997

"I started at Flinders in January 1997, and as such I have had the privilege of seeing every one of our graduates pass through the Flinders programs, barring the initial cohort of Diploma students.  What attracted me to Flinders in the first place was the opportunity to be involved in teaching into biomedical engineering undergraduate programs, with the thought that I could share my passion for the field with a group of similarly passionate individuals. I have not been disappointed - what a fabulous group of people, many of whom I am still in contact with today. It gives me great pride to see what they are achieving in their work and personal lives.

This is a time of growth; Flinders biomedical engineering has an exciting future, and I am looking forward to being part of it".


Dr Sherry Randhawa - since 1995

 Assoc Prof Kenneth Pope - since 1996

Dr John Costi - since 2009 

 "I started a wonderful journey into Biomedical Engineering at Flinders in 1993 and I have never looked back since.  There's something very special about the staff and students in Biomed. Sui generis".  "One of the highlights of my year is graduation. Seeing all the new graduates and remembering them as they developed through their years of study reminds me of the essence of what a university is about".  "With some of the leading equipment in the world, we have students from around the globe coming to Flinders, bringing a great mix of cultural diversity and knowledge into the classrooms and labs, and it is great to be part of this".
 Mr David Hobbs - since 2010  Strategic Professor
Mark Taylor - since 2012
 "I have many great Flinders memories as a student, and maintained a strong connection back to the School through the work placement program when working in industry. The opportunity to return to the School, to study a PhD and to work as an academic alongside my former mentors and teachers was too good to be true.  It's a vibrant and exciting place to be". "What drew me to Flinders was the significant potential for research, particularly in my field of orthopaedic biomechanics, but also because of the positive and friendly working environment within the MDRI. There are great opportunities for collaboration and for student involvement in industry-focussed projects".
