The Optical+Biomedical Engineering Laboratory (OBEL) is in the School of Electrical, Electronic and Computer Engineering at The University of Western Australia (UWA) in Perth, Western Australia, Australia.

The suburb of Crawley, situated on the Swan River just 10 minutes from the Perth central business district, is home to the university’s main campus. UWA is one of Australia’s most picturesque campuses, surrounded by leafy green spaces with open courtyards that can be enjoyed in Perth’s moderate climate.

OBEL’s research is in the fields of biomedical optics, biophotonics, and optical microscopy. It is conducted at the interfaces of the disciplines of optics, biomedical engineering, biology and clinical medicine. We study new ideas and seek deeper understanding of basic optical interactions in tissues, as well as build instrumentation and deploy it in imaging and diagnostic applications with collaborators in medicine and biology.

We have roles and projects for electrical engineers, software engineers, mechanical / mechatronics engineers, optical engineers, physicists, mathematicians, biologists, and biotechnologists.
