Personal profile


Dr Shaw is the Facility Director for Microscopy Australia and Platform Leader for X-ray CT imaging at UWA's Centre for Microscopy, Characterisation and Analysis. Dr Shaw's interests focus on the application of X-ray micro-CT, specifically in enhancing contrast in biological samples and developing workflows for 3D data analysis and visualisation. A marine biologist by training, Dr Shaw has applied a range of microscope techniques (optical, Raman, SEM, TEM and SIMS) to study structure and function in biominerals (teeth, bone, shell), but is more broadly interested the application of microscopy for the study of all biological, geological and synthetic materials.
