I am a senior research scientist for the Technology Delivery Group (TDG), which is a centre of excellence for Bayer process research for Alcoa World Alumina.

With a background in physics as well as chemistry my professional interests revolve around the science of measurement - of anything. From highly complex, precise instruments to rugged process models. Robots, lasers, plasmas with mud pies, oxalate cakes, and green liquor.

Assisting RACI with IYC 2011 touring displays about Chemistry that will travel around Australia visiting regional areas. Look for the one linking the chemistry, bauxite and emu "poo".
