Personal profile

Biography

Dr Shaw is technique group leader for X-ray CT imaging at UWA's Centre for Microscopy, Characterisation and Analysis. A marine biologist by training, Dr Shaw's interests focus on the application of X-ray and electron microscope techniques 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.
