Researcher Profiles

Mr Patrick Capon

Postgraduate Student
Faculty of Sciences

Patrick completed his Undergraduate degree in Chemistry at the University of Adelaide in 2014. In 2016 he completed his Masters of Philosophy in Chemistry with a Dean's Commendation for research on N-heterocyclic carbenes in metal-organic frameworks under the supervision of Prof. Christopher Sumby. Patrick is currently a PhD candidate with Prof. Andrew Abell, working on combining fluorescent nitrogen-vacancy nanodiamonds with fluorescent sensors for biologically relevant species.

Benjamin Baden

Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences

I am a HDR student in the Visual Physiology and Neurobotics Laboratory at the University of Adelaide, under Dr. Steven Wiederman and Prof. David O'Carroll (Lund University, Department of Biology). My current research focuses on Selective Attention in the Dragonfly brain utilising a range of techniques including Intracellular electrophysiology and neuroanatomy.

Dr Xiaohui Xing

Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Faculty of Sciences

Dr. Xiaohui Xing received his Ph.D. degree from the Department of Food Science at the University of Guelph in 2014 in Ontario, Canada. Xiaohui conducted all his Ph.D. experiments at a federal carbohydrate chemistry research lab of Agriculture Agri-Food Canada (AAFC), advised collaboratively by carbohydrate chemists Prof. Steve W. Cui and Prof. H. Douglas Goff. After his postdoc work with carbohydrate biochemist Prof. Vincent Bulone at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm, Xiaohui followed Prof.

Professor Peter-John Wormald

Professor Otolaryngology Head & Neck Surgery
Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences

KP.
Professor Peter-John Wormald

Professor Peter-John Wormald is one of the world's foremost sinus surgeons and a recognised world leader in sinus related technology.

Carmine Wainman

Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences

My research focuses on understanding the controls on the geometry, stratigraphic distribution and quality of coals of Middle to Upper Jurassic strata in eastern Australia. I use a combination of palynology, sedimentology, subsidence modelling, and high precision U-Pb CA-TIMS dates from volcanic sediments to resolve questions on the environments of deposition, controls on coal accumulation and correlating nonmarine strata. I have previously worked on a project which looked into palaeoenvironmental changes across the PETM interval in the North Sea.

Ms Aimee Horsfall

Postgraduate Student
Faculty of Sciences

Aimee graduated from a Bachelor of Science (Molecular & Drug Design) in Chemistry at the University of Adelaide in 2015. She then went on to complete a Master of Philosophy in Chemical Science at the University of Adelaide, with a focus on the secondary structure of peptides constrained with a fluorescent linker, under the supervision of Professor Andrew Abell.

Julian Schwerdt

Faculty of Sciences

I'm a computational biologist and began my scientific career as a software developer building biological databases in the UK. I returned to Australia to take up a position at the South Australian Partnership for Advanced Computing (SAPAC) as a Bioinformatics Specialist. This involved a close association with the Australian Centre for Plant Function Genomics (ACPFG) which in turn lead to a Ph.D and post-doctoral position at the ACPFG and the ARC CoE for Plant Cell Walls.

Dr Beverly Muhlhausler

Senior Research Fellow
Faculty of Sciences

I am a NHMRC Career Development Award Fellow (Level 2) and lead the Obesity and Metabolic Health Division of the FOODplus Research Centre at the University of Adelaide.My work on the impact of maternal overnutrition on the programming of obesity and metabolic disease has made a significant contribution to current understanding of how exposure to maternal obesity and/or an excess nutrient supply before birth acts to alter the development of key systems involved in the regulation of energy balance.
