Mr Patrick Capon
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. Patrick is also a member of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Nanoscale BioPhotonics and the Institute for Photonics and Advanced Sensing.
The focus of my PhD research is to attach fluorescent sensor molecules to fluorescent nanodiamonds in order to yield a hybrid molecule capable of ratiometric sensing of relevant biological species. My research is supervised by Prof. Andrew Abell and Dr. Malcolm Purdey, and is part of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Nanoscale BioPhotonics and the Institute for Photonics and Advanced Sensing.
