Peter was educated at the University of Tasmania, obtaining a First Class Honours degree in Mathematics. He then completed a PhD in Chemical Engineering at the University of Queensland, which was awarded in 1987. After graduating, Peter worked in industry for the Melbourne Research Laboratories of BHP. After several years at BHP, he returned to Tasmania, taking a research position in the Department of Medicine researching forward and inverse problems in electrocardiology. During this time he was awarded an ARC Fellowship. In 2001, Peter moved to Griffith. His research interests currently involve
- Forward and inverse problems in electrocardiology.
- Modelling the electric effects of cardiac ischaemia.
- Modelling blood flow in coronary arteries.
- Developing models for atheroma formation in artery walls.
- Numerical analysis of and techniques for evaluation for singular and nearly singular integrals.
- Developing theoretical techniques for determining cardiac tissue conductivity.
- Modelling of calcium signalling.
