Personal webpage



Originally from the "Sunshine State" of the US, I have lived in Australia for the past 7 years first studying my PhD in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Melbourne followed by employment at CSIRO and the University of Melbourne. I have extensive experience in thin film assembly methods, polymer and nanoparticle processing techniques, drug delivery, nano-biohybrid systems, and metal-organic frameworks.
