Chief Executive Officer, Managing Director / 4DMedical
Dr Fouras started his career in academic research studying experimental fluid dynamics in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. His early research in wind tunnel quantification placed him as a young leader in the area of imaging (within fluid dynamics) developing a number of new approaches to the imaging of gas and liquid flow. He held the position of Professor and Director of the Laboratory for Dynamic Imaging. Andreas was recognised by various awards from a range of research bodies including the National Health and Medical Research Council and the American Asthma Foundation. Andreas was able to apply concept to clinical use through the development of XV Technology, measuring airflow within the breathing lungs, at every stage of the breath, with both high spatial and temporal resolution at very low dose. Andreas' research has been documented in over 100 peer reviewed publications and over 40 patents and patent applications. Andreas founded 4DMedical in December 2012. He received Australian Davos Connection Australian Leadership Award (2013).
