  • Dr John McGhee is a practicing 3D Computer Artist, Senior Lecturer and the Director of the 3D Visualisation Research Lab at University of New South Wales (UNSW Australia). He also holds the position of Deputy Director of the National Institute for Experimental Arts (NIEA) in the faculty.

    John’s visual practice explores art and design-led modes of visualising complex scientific and biomedical data using 3D computer arts software, most recently using Virtual Reality (VR) techniques. His academic research builds on this theme with collaborative projects across the visual arts and biomedical sciences. Examples include VR in stroke rehabilitation, clinical MRI visualisation, bio-nano cellular visualisation, microscopy data visualisation, asthma care and engagement in infection control. All these projects push to improve models of working between artists, designers, patients, the public and healthcare professionals. These research projects all connect to the innovation agenda, demonstrating how the creative arts, design and media can mutually benefit the biomedical field of research and clinical care.
