We believe true insight can only come from unrestrained experimentation.

Prof Jon McCormack founded SensiLab in 2015 on the idea that the best way to learn was by making things. His vision was of a space where researchers from unconnected disciplines could collaborate freely in a vibrant and supportive environment. Today, that vision flourishes.

Our purpose-built workshop incorporates dedicated design, fabrication and production studios, all integrated with advanced computing infrastructure. Facilities include immersive visualisation spaces, sound and imaging studios, fabrication areas, a wet lab and a dedicated deep learning supercomputer. This mixture allows researchers to undertake complex, multifaceted projects under one roof.

The lab operates under Monash’s Faculty of Information Technology and is housed in the Monash Art Design and Architecture building on the University’s Caulfield campus. Our team come from a wide range of backgrounds and bring a diversity of ideas and expertise to the lab.

We are a resource for industry, researchers and postgraduate students interested in the unexplored possibilities of technology. Find out how to work with us.
