I’m an Engineer, Get me out of here! is back this March. Between the 4th and the 15th, students from twelve schools will be putting their questions to engineers in the Health Zone.
The Health Zone is a themed zone supported by Wellcome.
Ellen Simmons | Biomedical Engineer, Cambridge Consultants
I use technology to solve problems in healthcare.
Andrea Pacheco | PhD Student, Tyndall
I am creating a machine to see what parts of the lungs of a preterm baby are catching air or not, to help the doctors to cure them.
Kevin O’Brien | Senior Electronic Design Engineer, Becton Dickinson
I am designing the electronics for infusion pumps, which are used to provide pain relief during surgery, deliver fluids and medication to critically ill patients and to feed premature babies.
Laura Farina | CURAM Marie Curie fellow, Translational Medical Device Lab NUIG
As you cook your meal with a microwave oven, I use it to kill cells!
Sajjad Soleimani | Research Engineer, CURAM
I invent new devices to be used to cure heart problems, without doing any surgery.
Ted Burke | Lecturer, TU Dublin
I write software that analyses electrical signals recorded from someone’s scalp to figure out what’s happening inside their brain, then use it to help them to communicate or to control things like computers or robots.
