Peter is responsible for activities in the areas of polymer processing, polymer photochemistry and nanomaterials.
Stephen leads the Australian National Fabrication Facility Materials Node at the University of Wollongong. This in-house additive fabrication facility facilitates materials development research with a strong focus on bio-fabrication.
Zhilian's work is focused on surface bioengineering of bionic implants and biocompatibility of bionic implants.
Jun has research interests in the preparation of nanostructured electromaterials, especially carbon nanotube based 3D architectures, and in fuel cell applications, including cell design and catalytic electrodes.
Michael is an Australian Research Council Fellow at IPRI. His research interest is the cellular-material interface and application of scanning probe microscopy techniques to study biological and material interactions in the single molecule and nanoscale domain.
Robert is a Principal Fellow (Bionics) at the Intelligent Polymer Research Institute, University of Wollongong and Associate Professor and Head of Research, Centre of Neuroscience and Neurology Research, St Vincent's Hospital, Melbourne. These positions blend into his function as the Bionics program leader in the ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES).
Simon is an active researcher involved in all aspects of research being undertaken in the Electromaterials and Bionics programs within ACES. He is the lead materials chemist responsible for coordinating the development of new materials for use in the Bionics ACES program for use in spinal cord regeneration, muscle regeneration, epilepsy control, and controlled drug release projects.
Jeremy is a Principal Fellow at the Intelligent Polymer Research Institute and the Illawarra Health and Medical Research Institute.
Attila is the leader of the Solar Energy Conversion research strength at IPRI and the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science. He is an expert in organic photovoltaic device fabrication and advanced characterisation techniques using time-resolved optical and electrical probes.
David's research interests are to develop functional material and nanomaterial systems. This includes the development and application of functionalised conducting polymers and carbon nanotubes, and an internationally recognised program on the synthesis and use of porphyrins (artificial chlorophyll) in solar cells, which produced the best porphyrin-based solar cells in the world.
Marc's research focuses on synthesis of hydrogels (e.g. biopolymers such as gellan gum), their mechanical and electrical characterisation and processing using 3D/4D printing techniques (Additive Manufacturing).
Will is the Executive Director of the Australian Institute for Innovative Materials (AIIM). His research interests include factors influencing transport across conducting polymer membranes.
