Sandra Leon, and Janvier Miranda from Medicare local South Western Sydney came to visit. After the THRIL researchers introduced themselves, Sandra and Janvier presented their role at Medicare Local and what they were trying to achieve.
Today we were introduced to one of the research groups latest Adjunct Professors, Laurie Wilson. Laurie shared his history in eHealth and Telehealth, and also listened in on the projects currently undertaken by the researchers of THRIL. The THRIL meeting was conducted in our experimental lab, building 24 lab, with the quad display to allow the researchers off campus to join.

Dr. Laurie Wilson
Laurie was appointed as an Adjunct Professor by UWS in March 2014, to assist in developing research opportunities in Telehealth. Laurie has had a long career in CSIRO, originally involved with the physics of ultrasound imaging and most recently with the ICT Centre and Australian eHealth Research Centre. In that role he led several research and implementation projects in human-computer interaction and high bandwidth videoconferencing, including the development of a “Virtual ICU” service between Nepean and Katoomba Hospitals. He will be a frequent visitor and collaborator in the THRIL laboratory to help grow our current project areas to a larger scale.
