Overview:

Dr Andrew Lowe is currently an Associate Professor in Mechanical Engineering, and cardiovascular theme leader with the Institute of Biomedical Technologies at Auckland University of Technology. His current research activities are directed towards measurement and modelling of the cardiovascular system and smart textiles research in order to improve cardiovascular risk management in primary and community care.

Prior to joining AUT, he spent 15 years in the roles of Chief Technology Officer and Managing Director at a medical device company, leading an innovative non-invasive cardiovascular product from idea through manufacture, US FDA and European certification, intellectual property protection, worldwide licensing and distribution negotiations, and eventual trade sale. Before this he led software development for industrial, multi-axis cutting robots.

He graduated with a PhD from the University of Auckland with a thesis on fuzzy logic applied to patient monitoring in anaesthesia, and Bachelor of Engineering from the same university specialising in dynamics and control within the mechanical engineering department.
