Brenna Devlin

Additive biomanufactured tissue scaffolds for optimised mechanics, cellular growth and biocompatibility

Brenna is a PhD Student with the Biofabrication and Tissue Morphology Group. She received her Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical) (Hons) specialising in biotechnology from the University of the Sunshine Coast in 2020. Her thesis investigated methods of automated biomedical assessment of in-vivo tissues using optical coherence tomography and machine learning.

Brenna is currently working on additive biomanufacturing and tissue-scaffold interactions under the supervision of Dr. Mark Allenby and Professor Mia Woodruff. She will be focusing on melt-electrowriting (MEW) technology, cell culture and soft-robotics for next-generation clinical technology development. Brenna’s research aims to develop fundamental knowledge and technology in cell biophysics as well as medical research in human tissue regeneration and modelling.
