Materials node

Syed AshrafSynthesis Officer - University of Wollongong, Materials node

Matt BarrSupport Officer - University of Newcastle, Materials node

Dr Stephen BeirneAdditive Fabrication Manager - University of Wollongong, Materials node

Stephen joined the Intelligent Polymer Research Institute (IPRI) in May 2010 and has been working on materials processing methods by means of inkjet and extrusion printing techniques. He is also implementing a suite of commercial rapid prototyping systems that will be employed as development tools for future devices produced by the IPRI.

Adam FahySupport Officer - University of Newcastle, Materials node

Dr Sanjeev GambhirOrganic Chemist - University of Wollongong, Materials node

Sanjeev's research challenges include Oxidation of hydrophobic graphite to hydrophilic oxygenated graphene sheets (GO) and its appropriate functionalization for making it suitable for stable aqueous and organic dispersed GO sheets, the developing of non-silicon based materials for energy conversion such as dyes for dye sensitized solar cells, where the dye can be functionalized thiophene oligomers or conducting polymers and the surface modification of conducting polymer films and their commercial exploitation for device fabrication.
