Biography

obtained my Ph. D. from the University of Newcastle in 2001 working in the area of organosilane coatings for corrosion protection of various metal oxide surfaces, focussing on the mechanisms and oscillatory kinetics of self-assembly. From 2000-2001 I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Laboratory for Surface Modification, Rutgers University (NJ, USA) working with Prof. T.E. Madey, leading his group's synchrotron research (at Brookhaven National Laboratory) and collaborating with students and postdocs on various surface science projects (primarily on faceting, atomically rough surfaces for catalytic conversion applications). I then returned to Newcastle in 2002 to do a second postdoc, and present some lectures as a casual academic, before being appointed as a lecturer in Nanotechnology/Physics/Chemical Physics at Flinders in 2003, promoted to Senior lecturer in 2006, and Associate Professor in 2009. I am a passionate, life-long learner about all aspects of Science - Physics and Chemistry in particular - be it in teaching or research.

Teaching interests

I believe that students are best able to learn when I facilitate the placement of advanced concepts in context. I do this through providing contemporary examples inspired by frontier research, demonstrations, and exploration of conceptual relationships through innovative ICT learning tasks, which encourage self-directed learning. Context provides students with the ‘big picture,’ and achieves coherence. Moreover, it enables them to link new information with existing knowledge. These approaches also guarantee that I, as an educational designer, can evaluate if I have assisted students in achieving the educational objective of ‘understanding’ in preference to ‘memorising.’ This is paramount for graduates because 'understanding' is essential for enhancing their confidence, as well as competence.

Research interests

The Smart Surface Structures research group at Flinders is primarily interested in technology enabling surface architectures, which are achieved through exploiting the physics and chemistry of surfaces and interfaces. We seek to understand atomic and molecular mechanisms that take place and with knowledge of these, produce enhanced interfaces with properties tailored and optimised for their specific application. At the moment, our group's research effort is concentrated in the following areas

  • Atomic and Molecular Surface Nanostructures - Nanoscale surface phenomena, mechanisms of assembly, structural transitions and kinetic processes in atomic and molecular surface clusters, nanoparticles and thin films
  • Surface Attachment - supporting structures for sensor design materials
  • Surface Modification - tailoring the chemical, physical and mechanical properties of surfaces and interfaces for compatibility in their specific application
  • Corrosion protection - alternatives to currently used, hazardous, inorganic treatments
  • Novel Photovoltaics - building new architectures for harvesting solar power
  • Catalysis - the influence of morphology and particle size upon catalytic behaviour of surfaces
  • Polymer Physics - the influence of crystallinity and morphology on material properties
  • Molecular Electronics - aimed at producing atomic and molecular-scale wires on surfaces

and involves a range of spectroscopic and surface science techniques, such as (but not limited to) electron spectroscopy (XPS, UPS, AES) and microscopy (SEM, TEM, SAM), streaming zeta-potential (SZP), mass spectrometry (ToFSIMS), scanning probe microscopies (STM, AFM), Raman confocal microscopy and synchrotron measurements
