I graduated with BSc Hons (UTAS) in 1997 and my PhD in 2001 (UTAS). I then spent 1 year at the University of Virginia (USA), another year at the University of Bern (Switzerland), and 8 months in London (UK) working for a small analytical biotech company. I commenced an ARC APD fellowship in May 2004, and an ARC QEII fellowship in Jan 2009.
My research interests lie in the application, understanding and exploitation of the capillary and microchip electroseparation techniques for the analysis of complex samples with real world significance.
I am particularly interested in ways to perform construct sample in - answer out portable analytical devices for clinical, forensic, environmental and industrial applications.
My research spans many discipline boundaries and ranges from fundamental theoretical studies using computational fluid dynamics and the construction of new analytical microfluidic hardware, through development and optimisation of chemistry, finishing with the routine analysis of samples.
