I have occupied the Chair of Analytical Chemistry at UNSW since 1987. My interests are metrology in chemistry, chemometrics and electroanalytical chemistry.

I have a close association with the National Measurement Institute in Australia, working with them on the certification of reference materials, drug analysis (heroin signature program, and sports drugs), and aspects of measurement uncertainty.

I am an IUPAC representative on the Joint Committee on Guides to Metrology, Working Group 1, which oversees the Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement (GUM).

I am a member of the Australian Academy of Forensic Sciences and have a particular interest in presenting scientific evidence to the courts.
