Dr. Andy Choi is an early career researcher who received his Ph.D. from the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) in Australia in 2004 on the use of computer modelling and simulation known as finite element analysis (FEA) to examine the biomechanical behavior of implants installed into a human mandible. After completing his Ph.D., he expanded his research focus from FEA to sol-gel synthesis of multifunctional calcium phosphate nano coatings and nano composite coatings for dental and biomedical applications. In late 2010, Dr. Choi was successfully awarded the internationally competitive Endeavour Australia Cheung Kong Research Fellowship Award and undertook post-doctoral training at the Faculty of Dentistry of the University of Hong Kong focusing on the application of FEA in dentistry and the development of calcium phosphate nano-bioceramics.
He is currently serving as an associate editor for the Journal of the Australian Ceramic Society and on the editorial boards for a number of dentistry, nanotechnology, and orthopedics journals. To date, Dr. Choi has authored over 50 publications including 3 book (Thin Films and Nanocoatings of Hydroxyapatite on Titanium Implants: Production Methods and Adhesion Testing [ISBN 978-3-330-06425-6]) and 24 book chapters on calcium phosphate, nano-biomaterial coatings, sol-gel technology, marine structures, drug delivery, tissue engineering, and finite element analysis in nanomedicine and dentistry.
