 About me

Dr Stevens received his undergraduate degree in Medical Engineering from Queensland University of Technology in 2010, graduating with first class honours. He then completed his PhD in 2014 at the University of Queensland, in which he developed a physiological control system for dual rotary left ventricular assist devices operating as a biventricular assist device. He commenced a postdoctoral position as a Research Associate at the Graduate School of Biomedical Engineering in August 2015. He then became a lecturer in January 2018.
