Damian graduated from The University of Adelaide in 2018 with a Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Chemistry. Damian then went on to complete his PhD in Medicinal Chemistry at The University of Adelaide, under the supervision of Professor Andrew Abell and Doctor Thomas Avery. His work was focussed on the development and characterization of a new class of antibiotics, with his thesis being awarded "The Deans Commendation for Doctoral Thesis Excellence". Currently Damian works as a postdoctoral researcher at The University of Adelaide, and is currently working on the development of novel therapeutics to treat neuropathic pain. He is also a member of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Nanoscale Biophotonics (CNBP) and a Scientific Network Committee member for the Institute for Photonics & Advanced Sensing (IPAS).

My research area explores the development of small molecules that inhibit enzymes associated with pathogenic bacteria. Majority of my work focuses on the design, synthesis and characterization of such molecules, with the intended goal of developing highly potent and selective inhibitors of the target enzyme.

Damian has demonstrated 1st, 2nd year and 3rd year chemistry practicals at The University of Adelaide.
