The Australian Synchrotron is one of the most significant investments in scientific infrastructure in the nations’ history. Operational now for over a decade the facility has over 6,000 registered research users and has supported thousands of experiments.
Research performed at the Australian Synchrotron has led to world-leading results in: medical and life sciences, including key insights into diseases such as malaria and diabetes; advanced materials and engineering, including drug delivery systems and new electronic systems; and earth and environmental sciences including hydrogen storage materials and reduced CO2 emissions in cement manufacture.
The unique capability of the brilliant beams of light produced by the facility has also improved our understanding of our cultural heritage, from evidence of the earliest occupation of Australia to documents left by European explorers and uncovering secrets hidden in artworks.
The Australian Synchrotron is a wonderful example of how infrastructure, people and science can combine to have a lasting and beneficial impact on our lives.
Andrew's research improves the versatility and quality of x-ray imaging, including new methods in phase imaging and coherent diffractive imaging with applications such as tomographic imaging of cells and materials. He was a node leader in the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Coherent X-ray Science and is now a Principal Investigator in the ARC CoE for Advanced Molecular Imaging. He has published over 100 refereed articles and is currently President of the Asia-Oceania Forum for Synchrotron Radiation Research and president of the Australian Institute of Physics.
