Personal profile


I'm part of UWA's Fluid Science & Resources group where I work on research related to natural gas with a primary focus on gas hydrates. Prior to this, I was at UWA's Department of Physics and Astrophysics where I was carrying out research into nano-scale magnetic sensors for downstream applications in biological sensing. Previously, I worked as a researcher in both academic and joint government/industry labs in France and the USA.
