Dr Thomas Stuart Charles Macdonald

PhD in Chemistry (UNSW), BSc (Hons.) (USyd)

Science
School of Physics

I am a Postdoctoral Fellow working in the Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science with Prof. Dane McCamey. My work focuses on the possibility of using excitons as an information basis to perform logic operations. Previously, I worked with A. Prof. Jon Beves in the School of Chemistry using diffusion NMR to study supramolecular systems and non-equilibrium processes in solution as a route to directed molecular transport.
