Associate Professor Andrew Stranieri

Associate Professor, Information Technology

Information Technology Group C



Mt Helen Campus, Online


Associate Professor Andrew Stranieri is an AI researcher at Federation University Australia. Dr Stranieri’s expertise in health informatics spans data analytics in health, complementary and alternative medicine informatics, remote patient monitoring, telemedicine and intelligent decision support systems.

Andrew is the author of over 200 peer reviewed journal and conference articles and has published three books. In 2016, he co-founded Anidra Tech Ventures Pty Ltd, a company that performs remote vital signs monitoring in Indian hospitals. The technology processes data from sensors worn by patients to detect a deterioration and alert remotely-located doctors and nurses to view vital signs in real time.

Andrew is Associate Professor in Information Technology at Federation University and currently leads the Health Informatics Laboratory. Prior to commencing at the University of Ballarat (now Federation University), he completed his PhD at La Trobe University and was awarded an Australian Research Council Australian Postdoctoral Award (Industry).
