Welcome to my research homepage.  I am a senior lecturer in the Australian Pulp and Paper Institute in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Monash University.  My goal in setting up this page is to provide resources for researchers in paper and fibre science as well as showing my work.

Postgraduate and postdoctoral positions

I am part of a new ARC Linkage grant with a budget of $A1.15 million over three years .  We have available three PhD scholarships, one Masters scholarship and two postdoctoral positions.  I'm looking for academically excellent students with backgrounds in one of chemical engineering, materials engineering or science, pulp and paper science and engineering, chemistry or environmental science. Interested?  Send me an email at the address below. 

Monash University has postgraduate scholarships available. Please contact me if you are interested in applying for a project in any of my research areas.
