Professor of Chemistry; Director of ARC Training Centre for Portable Analytical Separation Technologies, School of Physical Sciences, University of Tasmania, Hobart, Australia.
Calling: “Science: because of a curiosity about things, and academia: because I like the balance between research and teaching – but most of all the autonomy to pursue my own research ideas.”
Regret: “No. But I would have studied some more biology!”
Emphasis: “I’m driven by how we can use new materials to improve analytical systems and ultimately enable more portable separation science applications.”
Advice: “Be opportunistic and don’t be afraid to take risks. Trust your own your ideas. Many breakthroughs come from young scientists.”
