    Michael graduated with a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering and Masters of Biomedical Engineering from UNSW in 2001. The topic of his master’s thesis project was the Ventracor Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD), where he developed custom software to simulate the hydrodynamic suspension of the impeller and its behaviour/ stability under external loading.  Many years later in 2010-2015, he completed a PhD at Sydney University. His area of investigation was the simulation of fretting wear and fatigue in modular orthopaedic implants, which a focus on dual taper modular hip implants. 
    Following graduation in 2002, Michael worked in building services at Connell Wagner, where he was involved in systems design and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis, including modeling of fire and smoke dispersion. At the end of 2004, Michael joined the Advanced Analysis Group (AAG) at WorleyParsons, where he worked on a range of biomedical projects using advanced computer tools such as finite element analysis (FEA) / CFD to solve issues for clients such as Cochlear, SpineMed, Columna, Stryker, Smith & Nephew, Zimmer, and Corin. In 2008, Michael joined Medical Device Research Australia (MDR) as Technical Manager, where he was the lead developer of the Human Injury Assessment Tool (HIAT) for the Australian DSTO that helped analyse the effectiveness of different body armour systems. Michael rejoined WorleyParsons AAG in 2011 as Principal Engineer, undertaking consulting work using FEA / CFD, numerical analysis and software development. 
    Three years ago in 2016, Michael joined ResMed as Principal Engineer and Manager of the Simulation & Gas Dynamics team. This was a newly formed team with the task of using computer based simulation tools such as FEA and CFD as an integral part of the product development cycle. During this time, Michael’s focus has been on building the team and its capability. The team supports all departments of the business such as Sleep (including mask and flow generator development) and Respiratory Care (including portable oxygen concentrator development). Recent work includes patient face/head anthropometrics, mask on face simulations, design for breathing comfort, venting, and aeroacoustics.

    Shaoying HUANG received the B.Eng., M. Eng., and Ph.D. degree from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore in 2003, 2006, and 2011, respectively. She joined the University of Hong Kong in 2010 working on computational electromagnetics (EM), and Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2012 working on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) related EM problems, both as a postdoctoral fellow. She has joined Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) as an assistant professor in the pillar of Engineering Product Development since 2014. She is an adjunct assistant professor in the department of surgery in National University of Singapore, Singapore. Her main research interests include low-field MRI, non-linear MRI image reconstructions, and RF aspects of MRI. Moreover, she is also interested in wireless power transfer, wideband RF/microwave components, radiofrequency (RF)/microwave noninvasive/contactless sensing.
