Personal profile

Area of academic expertise - outline

Multidisciplinary scientist, with interests that include the application of physics and chemistry toward investigation of challenging biological questions. His knowledge of advanced physical techniques enables characterisation of material properties, as well as investigation of biophysical and biological interactions of such materials for potential medical and industrial applications. His research has led to international publications, book chapters, successful grant applications resulting in commercialisation and the generation of IP, patents and license agreements.

Research interests include responsive biomaterials, nanomaterials, surface modification, surface biointeractions and characterisation using state of the art techniques such as Neutron Reflectivity, SANS, AFM, TEM, FTIR and ellipsometry. He has several years of experience in single chain phosphocholine biosurfactants, tissue engineering and protein interactions. Other interests include biological interactions of nanoparticles, proteins, cells, bacteria and more recently the development of engineered polypeptides, carbon nanotubes and bio graphene for biomedical application.
