Personal profile


Dr. Haibo Jiang is currently a Group Leader and DECRA Research Fellow at UWA. Before his relocation to Australia, Dr. Jiang completed his PhD in Materials at University of Oxford, and continued for a postdoc in Prof. Chris Grovenor’s group working on nanoscale secondary ion mass spectrometry (NanoSIMS) for biomedical imaging. Haibo’s research interests are focused on the development of novel analytical methods for biological applications, particularly multiplexed and high-resolution imaging of molecules with mass spectrometry imaging. His current projects involve further understanding of lipid transport, cellular cholesterol efflux and antimicrobial resistance.
