Researcher biography

With a diverse background across chemical and civil engineering, chemistry, materials science and waste management, I have strong fundamentals in research and project management. Since completing my PhD, I have been working under the auspices of the University of Queensland, heading up a number of high-profile, externally-funded projects.
