Brief Summary

 

I obtained my undergraduate degree and Honours from the University of Sydney before arriving in Perth and working for the CSIRO Division of Minerals. After more than 4 years working for CSIRO, I undertook my PhD studies here at Curtin. This was followed by postdoctoral work in Germany at the Max-Planck Institute for Colloids and Interfaces, now situated in Golm, Potsdam. Finally, I returned to Perth and was employed by Curtin as a research fellow. I am currently a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Chemistry.

 

Overview

My main interest scientifically, is in the area of crystallization. This spans the extremes from the purely fundamental to the purely applied. At the fundamental level, it is still not completely understood how something that is dissolved and random creates an ordered structure and what the pathways to this transformation are. At the applied end, the mitigation of scale, the promotion of crystallization and the understanding impurities have on crystallization processes are all topics I am working on.
