Dr Du

Dr Tian Du

Postdoctoral Research Assistant
Dr. Tian Du's preliminary research focus is the understanding and control of bulk and surface recombination in solar cells based on metal halide perovskites, using a combination of materials, spectroscopic and optoelectronic characterizations. His research also focuses on developing scalable and universal post-treatment methodologies for metal halide perovskite thin films that are not reliant on complex chemical modifications.

Dr Sheetal Inamdar
MEng, PhD

Postdoctoral Research Assistant
My work is focused on understanding how the collagen network in cartilage contributes to the tissues mechanical properties both in health and disease. More specifically, I utilise small angle X-ray scattering techniques combined with in-situ mechanics to probe the complex nanoscale mechanisms within the tissue. This combined methodology provides real time information into how the collagen fibrils behave under tissue level loading.

Dr Weiqi Li
BMed, MMed, PhD

Postdoctoral Research Assistant
My research focuses on the vascular biology and vascular engineering. Particular interest goes to the endothelial glycocalyx, a protective layer along the luminal surface of the blood vessel. I aim to elucidate how the glycocalyx develops and sheds under healthy and diseased vascular conditions. I also work on endothelial mechanics and directional cell migration on different types of substrate, with the ultimate gold of understanding the process of vascular stiffening and aging.

Dr Slater

Dr Ben Slater
PhD

Postdoctoral Research Assistant
I work with functional framework materials known as metal organic and covalent organic frameworks (MOFs and COFs). These materials possess porous channels which can be exploited for a variety of applications. My research looks at utilising these materials for lithium ion conductivity to increase the efficiency and safety of batteries by replacing the liquid electrolytes with a solid.
