About

I manage the ANFF-Vic Biointerface Engineering Hub at the Swinburne University of Technology. This involves managing a suite of instruments including 6 plasma reactors, an ellipsometer, QCM, dipcoater and Langmuir Blodgett trough. In this role I am responsible for training users on our instruments, conducting research that supports the hub, working on industry projects and promoting our hub.
