David Simpson

  • Associate Professor
  • University of Melbourne

Dr David Simpson is a Haimson Associate Professor in physical biosciences within the School of Physics at The University of Melbourne. He obtained his PhD in applied physics from Victoria University and has spent the past decade researching and commercialising quantum-based technology.

His current research is focused on diamond-based quantum sensors for biomedical and precision magnetometry applications. He has pioneered the development of high-resolution imaging techniques to visualise the electrical and magnetic properties of biological systems. These advances have led to the creation of two start-up companies which A/Prof Simpson has co-founded Chromos Laboratories and FeBI Technologies. These commercial activities seek to apply quantum sensing technology to improve the diagnosis, treatment, and management of neurological and iron-related disorders.
