Dr. Andrew G. Kirk
McGill University, Canada
Andrew Kirk is a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at McGill University where he leads research into the development of biomedical sensors and point-of-care diagnostic systems. He received the Ph.D. degree in Physics from King’s College (London) and was subsequently awarded research fellowships to undertake postdoctoral research at the University of Tokyo, Japan and the Vrije Universiteit, Brussels, Belgium before moving to Montreal. He is author of more than 200 journal articles and conference presentations and holds 4 patents. In 2015 he was awarded the William and Rhea Seath Award for Engineering Innovation by McGill’s Faculty of Engineering for his work on new tools for DNA amplification using nanophotonic techniques. The intellectual property that he has developed has now been licensed commercially to develop a high-speed diagnostic test for the SARS-Cov-2 virus. He is also a committed teacher, having twice been awarded the Principal’s Prize for Excellence in Teaching at McGill. He has served as Chair of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Director of the McGill Institute for Advanced Materials (MIAM) and has previously served as Interim Dean of Engineering and Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Education in the Faculty of Engineering.
