Biography

My background is primarily in nano-scale magnetism and spintronic devices. I have spent the last few years within UWA's School of Physics and Astrophysics, leading experimental and computational research on magnetic nano-particle detection for downstream applications in bio-sensing, work that was funded by an Australian Research Council DECRA and the USA Air Force. I am currently working in UWA's Fluid Science & Resources group on LNG-related research.
