Biography

Dr Bryon Wright has a diverse academic and industrial background which includes training in medical device development, spectroscopy and a stint in the microelectronics industry. In 2007, Dr Wright came to the University of Auckland to establish and then direct the Auckland Microfabrication Facility. As part, he has been a lead researcher and PI on grants at the interface of science, engineering and commerce.  Pursuing an interest in translational research, Dr Wright joined Manufacturing Systems Limited (NZ) in 2014 to develop products for medical, environmental, and energy applications. In 2017 he returned to the University of Auckland to develop novel implantable sensors at the Auckland Bioengineering Institute.
