Career Summary

Biography

I have worked extensively in the US in the field of fundmental atomic physics. Between 2000 and 2006 I was involved in multidisciplinary teams that had expertise in both Food Technology and Marine Science. My work in that period involved a combination of very applied physics, such as the cooking of wheat and limpet adhesion mechanisms, together with more fundamental physics, such as the characterisation of conjugated polymers and the photo-dissociation of molecules.

I am currently working in several teams studying diverse topics such as fundamental molecular physics, food science and human nutrition.

Qualifications

  • PhD, Flinders University
  • Diploma in Education, Flinders University
  • Bachelor of Science (Honours), Flinders University

Research

Research keywords

  • Atomic and molecular physics
  • Food Material characterisation

Research expertise

My research work is multidisciplinary. I have done research in various areas of Applied Science, such as Marine Science, Food Science and Nanotechnology as well as fundamental atomic and molecular physics.

Thus I have looked at physical processes in a variety of topics e.g.

  • The physical properties of cooked wheat in breakfast cereals.
  • Limpet adhesion mechanisms in the intertidal zone
  • The characterisation of conjugated polymers using photoluminescence techniques.
  • The photodissociation of simple molecules.

My most recent research into the photodissociation of molecules is part of a collaborative effort with researchers in the US who were developing a new set of experiments at the Advanced Light Source (ALS) at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory on California. I am the team co-leader and involved in the planning of the experiments and their implementation while at the ALS.
