Personal profile


Professor Gia Parish joined The University of Western Australia as an Australian Postdoctoral Fellow in 2001. She received the B.Sc. degree in Chemistry in 1995, and B.E. and M.Eng.Sc. degrees in electronic engineering in 1995 and 1997, respectively, all from The University of Western Australia, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering in 2001, from the University of California, Santa Barbara.

Her main research interests are III-V nitride materials and devices, and more recently porous silicon. Specific interests within these areas currently include development of processing technology, transport studies, and development of novel chem- and bio-sensors.
