Associate Professor Robert Shellie

Associate Professor Robert Shellie, ARC Australian Research Fellow with the University of Tasmania spent three months at Purdue University to further his work in the development of an in-situ system for chemical measurement of environmental pollutants in remote locations. This could be used in locations such as Antarctica, the sub-Antarctic, and by extension industrial sites, and remote communities.

Associate Professor Shellie has led research into developing instrumentation for environmental monitoring of fuel spills in Antarctica and the sub-Antarctic, and this is what sparked his interest in the development of this technology.
