Andrew Zalesky is Associate Professor in Engineering and Medicine at the University of Melbourne, Australia. He completed his Ph.D in Electrical Engineering at the same institute in 2007. Adopting an engineering mindset to study the brain has enabled Dr. Zalesky to innovate novel methods and models to understand the network organization of the human connectome in health and disease. He established one of the most widely used tools for performing statistical inference on connectomes, co-authored the first textbook on brain network analysis and led development of the Melbourne Subcortex Atlas. Dr. Zalesky is ranked among the top-1% of researchers worldwide, according to citations to his work (2018-2021) and he was recently voted by his peers as one of Australia's most innovative biomedical engineers. He currently holds a Senior Research Fellowship from the Australian National Medical and Health Research Council and serves as an Associate Editor for Network Neuroscience, Brain Topography and Neuroimage Clinical.
