Personal profile

Biography

Mark Spackman received his BSc in chemical physics (1976) and PhD in theoretical chemistry (1980) from the University of Western Australia. After several years of postdoctoral studies he was appointed at the University of New England in 1987. Promoted to Professor in 1999, he has served terms as Convenor of Chemistry and Head of School at the University of New England. In 2003 he was awarded a five-year ARC Australian Professorial Fellowship (2004-2008), enabling him to focus full-time on his research for an extended period, and in 2004 he was appointed at the University of Western Australia.

Professor Spackman has been Secretary (1995-1997) and President (2001-2003) of the Society of Crystallographers in Australia & New Zealand, a member of the Australian Academy of Science National Committee for Crystallography (1994-2004, 2008-2011), and was a past member (1993-1998) and Chair (1999-2002) of the International Union of Crystallography Commission on Charge, Spin and Momentum Densities. He has also served as a member of the Australian Research Council Expert Advisory Committee on Physics, Chemistry and Geoscience (2002-2003) and as a Co-Editor of Acta Crystallographica Section B and CrystEngComm.
