Materials Chemistry; Neutron & X-ray Scattering Science


I hold an academic position in the School of Chemistry at the University of Sydney and am also affiliated with the Bragg Institute at the Australian Institute of Nuclear Science and Technology (ANSTO). This reflects the fact that my research into inorganic solid-state chemistry makes particular use of neutron and synchrotron X-ray scattering methods to characterise the structures and dynamics of new materials.
