Andreas conceived and developed numerous technologies, including 4DxV, during his time as a researcher at Monash University. Completing a Masters and PhD, and then rapidly rising to the position of Professor and director of the Laboratory for Dynamic Imaging, Andreas was recognised by various accolades from a wide range of premier research bodies including the National Health and Medical Research Council and the American Asthma Foundation.

Andreas was also well respected as a leader in this field as evidenced by an ADC Australian Leadership Award (2013), and through his service on the Executive of the Australian Academy of Science EMCR Forum. Andreas served as an infantry officer in the Australian Army Reserve.

Andreas founded 4Dx in 2012 and has left other interests behind to fully dedicate himself to his roles at 4Dx.
