Alex began working with AIBE in 2018 on a project assessing the commercial feasibility of scanning ultrasound technology developed at the Queensland Brain Institute.

This technology commercialisation assessment utilised the commercialisation tourbillon framework developed by Associate Professor Damian Hine and applied commercial assessments of customer target markets, intellectual property, competitor and collaborator potentialities, and capital requirement modelling.  The research project led to the successful application of the project for a $1M Frontier Medical Research Future Fund grant for exploring Australia’s next major medical breakthrough. Alex will continue to work with QBI across these grant stages to identify commercial opportunities to progress the technology to market. 

Other projects have included the review of medical device regulation for digital health devices. Undertaken for the industry body MTP Connect, the report reviews current practices and formulates recommendations for adaptive regulation drawn from broad stakeholder interviews and comparative research of regulatory processes in other jurisdictions.

Alex has a background in UX and management from the culture, entertainment and events industries and holds a masters degree in Technology and Innovation Management with Dean’s Honours from the University of Queensland.
