Les is interested in the chemistry and biochemistry of foods and food plants. The main themes of his current research are: the structure, function and nutritional properties of food starches; genotype by growth environment effects on the quality and nutritional value of agricultural products; and the origins of the human diet. His research has resulted in over 100 peer-reviewed publications.

Associate Professor Vincent Gomes is a lead researcher in the emerging areas Polymer Science and Engineering and novel applications of polymeric nanocomposites. In particular, his focus on colloids and controlled/living emulsion polymerisation has provided new insights into the design, monitoring, scale-up, optimisation and control of such complex, multi-phase reaction systems (Laboratory for Integrated Polymer and Systems Engineering). The development of polymer nanocomposites based on carbon nanotubes and graphene have led to the development of novel sensors and catalysts.

E:

Sébastien is currently working in the Department of Chemistry at Warwick University, UK. He remains an honorary research associate within the School of Chemistry.

His research group at Warwick University focuses on the synthesis of macromolecules with highly controlled and pre-determinable structures using modern polymer and organic synthetic methods. They exploit supramolecular interactions to organise these molecules into nanostructured materials, for applications in nanomedicine (e.g. drug delivery, vaccines, antimicrobial materials - the materials are tested in house and in their group at the Monash Institute for Pharmaceutical Sciences (MIPS) in Melbourne, Australia), nanotechnology (e.g. components for optoelectronic applications), materials science (e.g. rheology modifiers) or chemistry (catalysis, processes, etc.).
