Dr Audrey Adji


Audrey Adji is a PhD graduate from the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Macquarie University, Sydney, in 2016. Dr Adji’s research focus is to characterise change in cardiac ejection pattern, cardiac contractility and pulsatile function of human circulation due to aging and cardiovascular diseases. This is achieved using hemodynamic approach through application of both medicine and engineering principles to cardiac physiology.

Dr Adji joined the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute in 2019 under Professor Christopher Hayward, head of Cardiac Mechanics Laboratory. She extends her research on pulsatile circulatory function to the effect of age-related arterial stiffness on the cerebral circulation through collaborative work worldwide. She has also extended her research on the changing dynamics of circulatory function in pulmonary diseases and metabolic dysfunction, as well as non-pulsatile hemodynamics in individuals with the heart assist device or “reduced pulsatility” mechanical circulatory system.

To date, Dr Adji has published papers in various scientific journals, and presented her work in numerous international and local scientific meetings. Dr Adji has won scientific awards and prizes, including the inaugural 2018 International Society of Hypertension Mid-Career Award for Women Researchers. She is actively involved in scientific societies such as Franklin Women, NSW Cardiovascular Research Network, High Blood Pressure Research Council of Australia and International Society of Hypertension.
