Nick Hong Seng Lee specialises in electrical properties of the human skin: bioimpedance measurement and biopotential acquisition through the skin

Nick's work focusses on understanding electrical responses of the human skin for applications in novel diagnostic medical devices. The ultimate goals of his research include to design and test new miniaturised devices interfacing with epithelial tissues in the skin for extracting bioimpedance information and biopotential signals, and potentially for skin cancer diagnostic.

Nick completed his BE (Hons I) in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Auckland, New Zealand. Prior to commencing his PhD studies, he was a research student at the Auckland Bioengineering Institute and the Experimental Tissue Mechanics Group in Auckland. He also has strong interests in science communication (having won the 2016 All-Institute 3-Minute Thesis at UQ) and student advocacy (currently serving as the President of the AIBN Student Association).
