Sch: Chemical Engineering

I am a Chemical Engineer who specialises in the design of advanced materials that exhibited useful properties at the nano-length scale. My research focuses on the fabrication of magnetic, electromagnetic and photo responsive nanomaterials that are driven by function. My goal is to bridge the gaps between fundamental research and applications of these advanced nanomaterials in areas of technological and broad societal interest. I was awarded a total of $3.99 millions in competitive research funding from the Australian Research Council to undertake research in novel material design and fabrication, and understanding of how these materials can be incorporated into new devices or engineering processes. To date, the materials my team designed have been used for cancer drug delivery, water treatment, and high performance electrochemical sensing.

I also teach in the Chemical Engineering Program at UNSW's School of Chemical Engineering. As a Fellow of the UNSW Scientia Education Academy, a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and the 2020 recipient of the Faculty of Engineering Education Innovation Fellow, I innovate and contribute to the design of engineering science, design and laboratory courses. My teaching philosophy aligns with a quote from Jacques-Yves Cousteau who said, “People protect what they love, they love what they understand, and they understand what they are taught” -- I see education as an act that transforms our beliefs, values and mindsets, with the potential to emancipate and empower its participants.
