Senior Research Fellow in Haptics, augmented reality and robotics
+61 3 522 72807
Mick has been a long-serving member of the CISR team, joining following his graduation from an engineering undergraduate degree in 2004. During his time at CISR, Mick has worked on a number of exciting projects such as the appropriately named 'Wobbly Wall', lead the Melbourne team in the LAGS Full Body-Scanning X-ray project, served as lead designer (mechanical/electronics) for the OzTouch Haptically Enabled EOD system throughout the CTD and CTDEP programs, and been co-designer of the OzBot mobile platform program working with the Victorian Bomb Response Unit and Victorian Counter-Terrorism Unit. Mick has always been a strong advocate of conducting applied research in areas that can help others. He developed and published in the areas of haptically-enabled computer mouse for the blind, micro-pump for drug delivery, and more recently focused on haptically-enabled tele-robotics for Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) applications.
Mick's research interests include robotics, haptic augmentation, stereo-vision, control of complex mechanical systems, and flight simulators.
Mick has a personal interest in camping, foreign languages and promoting sustainable living.
