Dr Anjali Tumkur Jaiprakash
Science and Engineering Faculty
Electrical Engineering, Computer Science
Anjali is a robobiologist working at the intersection of medicine, engineering and design, with a transdisciplinary approach to develop medical devices that translate robotic vision into affordable systems that can be used to improve healthcare outcomes. Anjali has experience in the fields of medical robotics, medical device, orthopaedics, trauma, bone and cartilage biology. She has extensive research experience in the hospital and clinical setting and the ethical conduct of research in compliance with the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research (the Code).
Currently, she is working as the Advance QLD Research Fellow at the Medical and Healthcare Robotics Group at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Robotic Vision and QUT under the supervision of a Robotics Engineer, Professor Jonathan Roberts and an Orthopaedic Surgeon, Professor Ross Crawford. With a proven ability to work in a multi-disciplinary role and to understand complexities across differing scientific fields, Anjali is working towards her vision to create a world in which robotics technology enables affordable medicine for all.
At QUT, Anjali is the core scientist for two research teams:
- Developing vision and control systems for robotic knee arthroscopy and
- Developing a universal retinal diagnostic system involving (a) human-centred collaborative design approach to improve retinal screening (b) development of plenoptoscope (lightfield fundus camera-Provisional patent number : 2017901153) and (c) accurate automated diagnosis of retinal conditions using machine learning techniques
