Dr Fredy Munoz Mopan

Postdoctoral Research Fellow

School of Clinical Medicine
Faculty of Medicine

Overview

Fredy Munoz received the B.Sc. degree in Electronics Engineering and the M.Sc. degree in Industrial Automation from the National University of Colombia, Bogota, Colombia, in 2007 and 2009, respectively, and the MBA degree from Stevens-Henager College, Salt Lake City, USA, in 2010. After having worked on the automation of manufacturing processes with the private sector, he completed the PhD degree in Mechatronics at the University of Wollongong, Wollongong, Australia, in 2016. His PhD work focused on magnetic actuation for untethered capsule robots and medical devices. He worked on magnetic sensing as a Research Associate with the Centre for Autonomous Systems at the University of Technology Sydney, Sydney, Australia, before joining the CCRG and the ICETLAB as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow with the University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia. Dr. Munoz has broad experience in Electromagnetic (EM) systems, FEM modelling (Comsol Multiphysics), fabrication of novel EM sensors and actuators, magnetic devices for surgical robotics, software and hardware integration and mechatronics. His current research interests include the development of highly efficient EM sensors and actuators for implantable medical devices and rotary blood pumps
