Professor Stephen Wilson has worked in the field of medical electronics and instrumentation for over twenty years. He has a teaching and research role within the biomedical engineering group at the School of IT & Electrical Engineering within the University of Queensland and a senior medical officer appointment at the Mater Children’s Hospital. He has devised and commercialised electronic sensing equipment for MRI systems marketed worldwide. He has led an engineering team developing physiological monitoring systems as part of a University spin-off company.

Research Interests

The study and design of applied medical electronics has been an active field of interest. Specifically, published investigations into the signal processing and clinical applications of various pulse oximeter designs have been noteworthy as well as sensing techniques in respiratory medicine. He is active in biological signal analysis specifically, human cardio-pulmonary regulation and diagnosis of disorders based on nonlinear analyses. He has presented and published in this area and continues to develop projects and supervise PhD student projects relevant to this discipline. Currently he is actively involved in biophotonics applied to skin diagnostics and electrophysiology, novel respiratory therapy devices and anesthetic delivery systems.
