Dr Asha Mathew is an Advance Queensland Industry Research Fellow (AQIRF) with expertise in the field of biomaterials, especially in the area of bio-fabrication (solution, melt electrospinning, 3D printing), drug delivery, biomaterial processing, developing antibacterial surfaces and tissue engineering. She was awarded her PhD from National University of Ireland, Galway in November 2013.
Dr Mathew has been actively working in developing bactericidal nano-textured surfaces on titanium implants and antibiotics coating on polymeric scaffolds. Dr Mathew has hands on experience in surface modification and has wide experience in material physical, chemical and biological characterization including design, implementation, and analysis of the project, and bacterial studies to establish bactericidal effect of nano-textured metal surfaces as well as on polymeric surfaces.
