Associate Professor, School of Chemistry & Physics

Doctor of Philosophy (Queensland University of Technology)

I am a physicist with research interests which mainly focus on radiation detectors, radiation interactions, and how these apply to medicine. I have been involved in numerous research projects focusing on radiation measurement devices, imaging, radiation safety, and optimization of radiation fields used in medical applications. But really, I like to dabble in anything interesting.

I completed my BSc in 1998 and BSc (Hons) in 1999 at QUT. I then worked at Queensland Health (Princess Alexandra Hospital) as a Medical Physicist before commencing my PhD back at QUT (completed 2003). The topic of my PhD was in CT imaging and radiation interactions in polymer gel dosimeters. In 2003 I was employed as a postdoctoral research scientist at the Institute of Cancer Research/Royal Marsden Hospital in London (Sutton), UK. During this time, I further developed gel dosimetry for the clinical environment. In 2004 I joined RMIT in Melbourne as an academic, and in 2007 joined QUT in Brisbane.

I am currently the Editor-In-Chief of the journal Physical and Engineering Sciences in Medicine, am a member of the Publications Committee of the International Organization for Medical Physics, and a member of the Australian Institute of Physics Accreditation Panel.
