Senior Research Fellow

PhD QUT, MEng(Electronics) UV, BEng(Hons) UV

Dr David Alonso-Caneiro is a Senior Research Fellow in the School of Optometry and Vision Science and Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation at Queensland University of Technology (QUT).

David graduated from the University of Valencia (Spain) with a Bachelor of Engineering degree in Telecommunications with First Class Honours in 2002 and a Master of Engineering in Electronics in 2004. He then moved to Limerick (Ireland) to work as an Evaluation Design Engineer for Analog Devices Inc. for two years. In 2007, he joined QUT to start his PhD under the supervision of Professor Robert Iskander and Professor Michael Collins. In 2010, he completed his PhD thesis, “Non-invasive Assessment of Tear Film Surface Quality”, developing the use of a new technique to assess the quality of the tear film. The thesis was awarded the QUT Outstanding Doctoral Thesis Award 2010.

David’s current research interests include signal and image processing, especially in the area of biomedical engineering. He aims to develop innovative signal and image processing methods along with novel automated analytical software tools to solve complex clinical problems, and enhance the information and diagnostic capabilities of various clinical devices. His interdisciplinary research interests include:

  • Medical image analysis
  • Multi-modal imaging methods
  • Tear film and contact lens imaging
  • Optical Coherence Tomography

David is committed to establishing a strong track record of publication in high impact top-tier journals. To date his research work has led to over 35 peer reviewed publications as well as 15 conference papers. David recognises the importance of building and maintaining collaborations with leading researchers in his field. These collaborations with national and international researchers are instrumental in acquiring a deeper level of expertise and the advanced abilities necessary for success in the multi-disciplinary field of biomedical engineering.
