A well-rounded academic, researcher, project manager, mentor and mid-career professional with 10 years’ experience focusing on polymer chemistry, materials science, nanotechnology, biomaterials, biosensors, enhanced oil recovery and catalysis. Receiver of several excellent awards: University of New England K.G. Lewis Prize (1997), Australian Research Council (ARC) Funded Postgraduate Scholarship (1998), New Staff Start-Up Research Fund of University of Queensland (2007) and Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) award (2008-2009). With a long-standing collaboration with Prof. Craig J. Hawker, the work on self-assembly of polymer-gold nanoparticle composites at University of Queensland, Australia resulted in high-impact American Chemical Society (ACS) journal publications, with a significant number of citations. My career objective is to strive for excellent for a higher education institution that provides an atmosphere of mutual growth and benefits, where I can continue to express my talents and potential.
