Andrew’s expertise is in signal and image processing and biomedical applications in particular. Andrew received his PhD from UQ in 1996. After which he completed a post-doctoral fellowship at The University of Alberta in Canada, and then worked as Principal Research Engineer for Canon Information Systems Research Australia (CiSRA) and a Senior Lecturer at The University of New South Wales. He has been at the University of Queensland's School of Information Technology & Electrical Engineering since 2005.

In 2011 Prof. Andrew Bradley, successfully applied for a Future Fellowship. Leveraging on his expertise in virtual microscopy and imaging processing, Andrew’s research will contribute to the development of the next generation of virtual microscopy systems that not only provide superior image quality and focus control, but also access to advanced features such a quantitative analysis, multi-modal imaging and extended focal depth. To achieve this, the project will develop a novel image acquisition platform capable of acquiring both visible contrast and fluorescence images of whole specimens and develop novel algorithms for the construction, storage and retrieval of digital specimens for both on-line and off-line analysis. These tools will especially contribute to the screening and diagnosis of cervical, lung and bladder cancer.
