    Profile

    Qualifications

    Experience with working with lasers and optical methods. I have knowledge of microscopy methods, including confocal, widefield and darkfield modalities.

    Skills in analysing and manipulating nanomaterials with light fields.

    Nanofabrication and cleanroom experience as well.

    PhD – The University of Queensland (UQ), Australia, 2004

    ‘Dendritic Receptors on Self-Assembled Surfaces for Metal Ion Uptake’

    Developing new surface receptors on a sensor for detection of heavy metal ions using piezoelectric transduction. Dendritic polymers were implemented as sensor functionalities on the gold sensor electrode surface. Surface analysis methods such as XPS and AFM were used during the research.

    BSc (Hons) – The University of Queensland (UQ), Australia, Class 1, 1998

    ‘A New Strategy for Self-Assembled Surfaces on a QCM to Probe Metal-Ligand Interactions’

    Working with silica particles as a coating to develop elements of a sensor for detection of heavy metal ions.

    BSc - The University of Queensland (UQ), Australia, 1997

    Career Goals

    To be a team leader at an institute/company involved in problem solving of research matters relevant to society.

    Research Interests

    Nanooptics and society; Latest interest and experience involves using lasers for the purpose of research and development.

    Professional Background / Positions

    Presently - Guest researcher in Soft Condensed Matter group, Universiteit Utrecht

    Dec 2008 – Mar 2011 Postdoctoral researcher in Soft Condensed Matter group, Universiteit Utrecht,; ‘FOM programme: Plasmonics: Nonlinear plasmonics’

    Project 1 involved studying and imaging silver nanoparticles in particular silver nanooctohedrons using electron microscopies and optical microscopies. The silver nanoparticles were observed to develop nanoparticulates on the surface as it aged. The roughened silver surfaces were then used for Raman spectroscopic work. For this project I needed to seek out support and expertise of others outside my own group to solve the relevant research problems.

    Project 2 involved creating gold nanorod arrays using e-beam lithographic methods and inducing melting of the nanoparticles using a fast fs – laser. Clean room facilities were used for fabrication. The optical properties before and after were observed. A home-built optical setup was implemented for this study and knowing how to align the laser light was integral part.

    Sep 2008 – Dec 2008 Visiting postdoctoral researcher in Quantum Transport group, Kavli Institute for Nanoscience, TU Delft, ‘plasmonics’

    Feb 2007 – Aug 2008 Institute for Nanoscale Physics and Chemistry (INPAC), Centre of Excellence Postdoctoral Fellow, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium, , ‘Wide field fluorescence microscopy to study the optical properties of silver nanowires and STM of organic molecular template.’

    Silver nanowires were exposed to wide field laser light. A laser light was directed through a setup into a microscope where the sample was placed. Bright scattering spots were observed along the wire. Operating and aligning the laser to the right position important for this role.

    Oct 2006 – Feb 2007 Visiting Research Fellow in Optics and Photonics Group, University of Bristol (UOB), United Kingdom, ‘FDTD modeling of metallic nanostructures for single photon sources.’
