Fernando Maya is a Senior Lecturer in Chemistry at the School of Natural Sciences. He is interested in the development of novel materials and their application as supports for chemical separation.

Biography

Fernando completed his MSc (2007) and PhD in Chemistry (2011) from University of the Balearic Islands (UIB, Spain). He was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship to conduct postdoctoral research at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (USA, 2012-2013), followed by a postdoctoral research/adjunct lecturer position at the UIB (2014-2018). He was appointed as a Lecturer in Analytical Chemistry at the University of Tasmania in July 2018 and promoted to Senior Lecturer in July 2020. He is an academic member of the Australian Centre for Research on Separation Science (ACROSS).

Research Themes

Fernando’ s research aligns to the research themes of the Australian Centre for research on Separation Science (ACROSS). His research interests include the synthesis of porous polymers and hybrid materials, the development of supports for extraction and separation based on 3D printing, and the design of novel methodologies for analytical sample preparation. Combining advanced materials and novel manufacturing techniques we plan to develop unprecedented approaches for chemical separation, enabling highly selective chemical separations of complex mixtures, or the detection of biologically/environmentally relevant molecules at very low levels.

Projects

Water monitoring systems for deployment at the Copping Waste Site (2022)$19,991
Description
two portable capillary electrophoresis prototype systems already developed will be replicated and deployed in collaboration with Syrinx and Southern Waste Solutions (SWS). These systems will be tested for their capability to monitor inorganic ions and heavy metals in the remediation system to provide information on design and optimisation of future remediation systems.

Boosting research capability to develop value-added products for the food and wood industries in regional areas. (2021 - 2023)$4,015,643
Description
Food and wood products are areas of strategic growth for Tasmania and regional Australia, contributing $1.6 billion and $615 million, respectively, to the annual Tasmanian economy. A thriving and sustainable sector requires continued innovation to locally value-add and diversify products and markets. Innovation is underpinned by research strengths and a workforce sector connected to advances in technology and trained graduates. The University of Tasmania (UTas) is committed, through its strategic plan, to deliver impactful research to help Tasmania prosper, and to have influence nationally and globally. Through collaborations, this three-year project will increase research and development activity at UTas to support value-adding in niche food and wood products in regional areas. The delivery of the project will build cross-disciplinary, integrated collaborations at UTas, and together with long-term external partnerships and collaborations, will maximise the benefits of interdisciplinary approaches to delivering impactful research for the regions

Mobile soil water extraction for biological and chemical analysis (2020 - 2023)$110,000
Description
NOTE: This is funding for a Phd Scholarship, that will be administered within the existing CRC Soil : Smart Soil Sensors project.NOTE: Th funding has already been granted by the Soil CRC: UTAS/TIA will provide 50% stipend. The other 50% and operating will be provided by the SOIL CRC.Growers need a fast, reliable paddock based means to measure soil NPK in order to manage fertilizer application in a timely, spatially cognisant, and efficient manner. Current soil testing is too slow and too expensive for either precision fertilizer management or reactive fertilizer management. This project will prototype a mobile device for the extraction of soil water for microbial and chemical analysis . The device will be able to extract soil water from both moist and wet soils, which when coupled with Lab on a Chip analysis will report the true availability of nutrients that plants are able to extract from the soil.
