Achievements

Stuart received his BSc (Hons) from The University of Sydney in 2004 and completed his PhD with Professor Robert Gilbert at The University of Sydney in 2008. He has since held post-doctoral positions at The University of Toronto, Canada (with Professor Mitchell Winnik) and The University of Sydney (with Associate Professor Chiara Neto). In 2012 he was awarded a Vice-Chancellor's Post-Doctoral Fellowship to join the School of Chemical Engineering at The University of New South Wales. He was appointed as a Lecturer in Soft Matter Chemistry at The University of Tasmania in February 2015.

A high speed, high fidelity 3D printer for fabricating microfluidic devices (2017 - 2020)$930,198
Description
The University of Tasmania and Young Optics Inc will develop a novel 3D printer offering the highest resolutionavailable and fastest printing speed for the single-step manufacturing of complex microfluidic devices. New resinsdeveloped to exploit the inert liquid interface layer printing approach will provide unprecedented capability tocreate micron sized channels interconnected in 3D space and fabricate Lab-on-a-Chip systems that cannot begenerated by any current fabrication approach. This novel high speed, high fidelity 3D printer and the new resinsto be developed will lead to more effective manufacturing approaches for portable chemical devices and promotecomplex chemical analysis into the knowledge immediacy culture of today.

Polymer nanoparticles with gradient morphology for environmentally friendly aqueous coatings applications (2015)$330,913
Description
The commercial and practical importance of coatings (paints) in todays society can hardly be overstated.With the ongoing drive towards more environmentally friendly coating systems, there is a strong desire toreplace traditionally employed solvent-based coatings with entirely waterborne systems. Waterbornecoatings are a key measure by which the coating industry can meet requirements to reduce emission ofVolatile Organic Compounds. However, maximum performance can to date not be achieved usingwaterborne coatings, which in turn limits applications. The overall aim of the present proposal is to developenvironmentally friendly high-performance waterborne coatings that will enable replacement of currentlyemployed solvent-based systems.

Biomimetic templating radical polymerisation in nanoreactors (2015)$360,000
Description
The aim is to develop methodology for synthesis of polymer with hitherto inaccessible control of themicrostructure by free radical means, that is the molecular weight distribution and monomer sequences. Thiswill be achieved by combining the two concepts of (i) biomimetic templated radical polymerisation and (ii)polymerisation in nanoreactors in the form of submicron-sized micelles or droplets. Scale-up of themethodology will be developed based on an environmentally friendly approach whereby miniemulsions aregenerated using carbon dioxide. Increased ability to control the polymer microstructure will enable advanceddesign of functional polymers with far-reaching applications in materials science, nanotechnology andnanomedicine.
