BA 1967 (Oxon) DPhil 1972 (Oxon) MA 1975 (Oxon).
1972 - 1975 Department of Plant Science, University of Leeds. PostdoctoralResearch Fellow
1975 – 2005 Electron Microscope Unit, University of Sydney. (Deputy Director 2001-2005)
Engagement with the Unit
My major retirement project was a textbook, Optical Imaging Techniques in Cell Biology, which is scheduled to go into a second edition late in 2011. Another, multi-author, book on fluorescence techniques is scheduled for a slightly later time slot. I am also involved in a number of book chapters.
In research I am collaborating on super-resolution with Assoc Prof Liz Harry (UTS), on red blood cell properties with Prof Phil Kuchel (MMB) and on coral pigments with Dr Anya Salih (UWS).
Other Research interests
Super-resolution microscopy, and the early evolution of photosynthetic organisms, are my major current research interests.
