Dr Brett Marmo is the Technical Director of Xi Engineering Consultants. Dr Marmo received his PhD from The University of Melbourne in 1999 for his work studying glacial movement in Antarctica and its ramifications for global climate change. His studies in Antarctica involved numerical simulation of glaciers combined with field-based measurements. This underpinning of high-level numerical simulations with robust hands-on field work became a theme of his career which has varied through a wide range of topics and continues to be his guiding philosophy at Xi.
Dr Marmo lectured in geology at The University of Sydney and material sciences at The University of Edinburgh. His research while in academia ranged from metamorphic processes in rocks to the sliding friction on ice for winter Olympic sports. In 2006, Dr Marmo joined Xi Engineering Consultants (previously known as Reactec). At Xi he leads a team specialising in acoustics, vibration, electro-statics and electromagnetics. In the last year Dr Marmo and his team have measured and simulated a wide range of devices including ultrasound transduces, headphone speakers, seismicity of wind turbines, underwater noise from piledriving and generators for renewable devices.
Med-Tech gives us the opportunity to show and discuss the types of services that Boddingtons Plastics can offer to our customers. We've seen really good footfall and had several new leads for new devices. The show has been a great success for us and in fact we've booked for next year already.
MedTech Innovation Expo was a fascinating event that gave us new insight and inspiration into the challenges we face and, more importantly, into the solutions to solve those challenges. We’ve already marked the event on our calendar for next year and we can’t wait to see what progress has been made… and perhaps, more importantly, what progress we can aid with our Aether Engine technology!
It was great to speak at this excellent event, very well attended by the NHS and Industry, well organised and plenty of opportunities for networking. Looking forward to coming again next year!
We’ve managed to get a lot of interest of people... It’s a lot bigger than what we expected, and we’ve managed to find unexpected partnerships with companies we didn’t even know existed. We were here last year but we weren’t exhibiting, and we were impressed with the quality and quantity of exhibitors, so we thought it was worth it this year.
