Biography

Professor Stuart Crozier is the Associate Dean (Research) for the Faculty of Engineering, Architecture and Information Technology. He is also the Director of Biomedical Engineering at The University of Queensland and an Australian Research Council Professorial Fellow. His expertise lies in imaging technology and applications, instrumentation for physiological measurement and semi-automated diagnostics. The commercial and academic impact of the work in Magnetic Resonance Imaging has been significant, with about seventy percent of all high-end, clinical MRI systems installed worldwide after 1997 containing patented technology co-invented and fully developed by him. Specifically, this technology concerns a method of correcting the field shifts caused by pulsed magnetic field gradients by frequency and phase modulation of the transmitter and/or receiver in an MR scanner. This is significant because it changed the level of image fidelity possible and has allowed faster and more accurate images to be obtained. The work has also brought substantial financial returns to Australia.

In 2012 Professor Crozier received the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences (ATSE) Clunies Ross Award for his 20-years of contributions to the field of Magnetic Resonance Imaging. The award recognises outstanding achievement in the application of science and technology for the benefit of the wider community.
