Researcher biography

My research focuses on the use of molecular dynamics simulations to understand molecular materials. During my PhD research at the University of Sydney I studied the formation of nanopatterns formed by polymer brushes for microfluidic devices and nanoparticle assembly. During my Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, I used molecular simulations to investigate natural gas extraction from shale. My current research in the School of Chemistry and Molecular Biosciences at UQ focuses on organic semiconductor thin films and molecular force field development.
