Personal profile

Research Biography

I received my PhD from Flinders University in 2000, during which one of the projects was to construct an instrument to measure energy releases following photodissociation of van der Waals molecules (these are species containing two or more molecules/atoms held together by weak intermolecular forces).   From 2000-2003 I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California USA where we investigated the photodissociation dynamics of radicals, and multi-fragment dissociation events.   Following this I moved to Adelaide University and worked there until 2008 building an apparatus to explore the molecular-level dynamics of evaporation at the liquid-vacuum interface.   In 2008, I returned to Flinders University when I took up my current position as lecturer and research fellow.

Research Interests

My research interests lay in the fields of laser chemistry and reaction dynamics, and include the following themes:

Reaction Dynamics:
  • Energy partitioning during photodissociation of van der Waals molecules.
  • Evaporation dynamics at the liquid-vacuum interface.
Electronic Spectroscopy:
  • Structure of van der Waals clusters.
  • 2-Dimensional Laser Induced Fluorescence (2D-LIF) spectroscopy.
  • Rovibronic analysis of large polyatomic molecules.
  • Nanoparticle formation using laser based methods.
