About the CSIRO Scientists

The Australian e-Health Research Centre (AEHRC) is CSIRO’s digital health research program – enabling the digital transformation of healthcare to improve services and clinical treatment for Australians. AEHRC has world leading capability in areas such as clinical terminology and data interoperability; health data analytics; clinical image analysis; genomics data analytics and engineering; biostatistics, mobile health, tele-health and health internet of things, among many others. It has collaborations with many partners across the healthcare system improve diagnosis and treatment—in Australia and throughout the globe.


Dr David Hansen is the CEO and Research Director of the Australian e-Health Research Centre at CSIRO. With over 100 scientists and engineers the AEHRC is Australia’s largest digital health research centre. 

Dr Sankalp Khanna research is focussed on applying artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques to model, analyse, predict, simulate and optimise patient flow through Australian public hospitals and to develop explainable algorithms for delivering decision support that clinicians can interpret and trust. 

Dr Anthony Nguyen research focuses clinical natural language processing (NLP) research program and deliver innovative software solutions for automating the analysis of unstructured, narrative medical records. In partnership with healthcare providers, he creates value from health data to deliver improved patient outcomes, health system performance and productivity. 

Dr Priya Ramarao-Milne undertakes research and development in the use of cloud computing for large scale genomic analysis. This includes the VariantSpark tool which overcomes the limitation of traditional approaches that requires data to be eliminated or identifying only independent markers.  

Dr Jurgen Fripp Jurgen leads AEHRC’s Image Analysis team, conducting research into image analysis algorithms for applications in positron emission tomography (PET), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT). The developed workflows have been applied to support various large clinical studies, including AIBL ( 

Dr Kaley Butten is part of our mobile health research team at AEHRC. Kaley is a mixed-methods researcher with a background in public health. Her research interests are informed by the social determinants of health, the non-medical factors (where people are born, grow, work, live, and age) which affect human health and access to health care.
