Biography

Dr Mark C Allenby is a Senior Lecturer in Chemical Engineering at the University of Queensland, where he is currently hiring postdoc and PhD researchers.

Allenby is also an Adjunct Senior Lecturer at QUT performing research in collaboration with the Biofabrication and Tissue Morphology Laboratory. Allenby was a Lecturer and Advance Queensland Research Fellow at QUT from mid-2018 to mid-2021, where he principally supervised 3 PhDs and 2 MPhil/RAs and co-supervised 7 PhDs. He received a PhD and MSc in chemical engineering from Imperial College London for his research in cell biomanufacturing and has undergraduate degrees in mathematics and chemistry.

Allenby has published more than 20 articles which aim to improve medical manufacturing processes through tissue engineering, biomedical image analysis, and computational modelling. He is the keynote speaker of bioprocess engineering and automation for the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society (TERMIS), and in 2020 won his department’s Early Career Researcher Award. Allenby’s projects and interests include:

In his 3 years at QUT, Allenby was awarded $1,200,000 of funding as chief investigator across 15 competitive funding rounds. He is thankful to the following funding organisations:
