Career highlights

January 2015 - present: Alfred Deakin Research Fellow, metored by Prof. Peter Hodgson and Prof. Lingxue Kong.

I lead research on the design of Separation Materials focused on organic solvent purification, solvent separation, catalytic conversion and resource recovery. My main research focus is on the development of advnaced nanoporous materials with combinatorial properties, including nano-metals and micro/nano porous carbons. I am the current principal supervisor of 4 PhD student and co-supervize 8 PhD students at Deakin, RMIT, Swinburne and Victoria Univeristy, as well as co-supervize students in the UK (University of Surrey) and Egypt (American University of Cairo).

June 2012 - December 2014: Institute for Frontier Materials, Deakin University - Cooperative Research Network Fellow between Deakin University and Victoria University (Institute for Sustainability and Innovation) under the supervision of Profs. Hodgson, Kong and Gray.

I am working on the design and fabrication of novel metal based membranes for water purification and gas separation. His intesrets interests include the growth of catalytic nano-particles, the design of micro-porous metal structures (metal organic frameworks), and the fabrication of hybrid ion exchange polymer - metal membranes for electrodialysis. He is also working on developing new routes to use carbon nanotubes and graphene as growth substrates for the formation of micro-porous networks.


January 2011 - May 2012: CO2CRC - The University of Melbourne, Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering - Australian National Low Coal Emissions Coal Research and Development (ANLEC) post-doctoral fellow.

I investigated novel routes to purify amine based solvents used for CO2 capture (electrodialysis, nanofiltration)

January 2008 - January 2011: CSIRO Materials Science and Engineering (Clayton, Victoria) & the Institute for Sustainability and Innovation at Victoria University - PHD on the "Design and fabrication of Carbon nanotube membranes for water desalination and gas adsorption"

January 2007 - January 2008: CSIRO Materials Science and Engineering (Belmont, Victoria) - Master student in conjunction with the ENSISA (Mulhouse, France). His research investigated the impact of fibre and yarn orientation on the mechanical properties of Kevlar, carbon fibre and glass composite materials. He also worked on the fabrication of electro-spun yarns through continuous spinning/twisting.

Research interests

Dr Dumee's research is focused on the development of novel nano-materials for water desalination, industrial waste purification and gas separation. He is a materials engineer who enjoys working on multi-disciplinary projects. Ludo is currently investigating routes to fabricate nano-porous metal membranes by de-alloying, metal nano-fibre spinning, nano-particle electrical sintering and metal functionalized block co-polymer self-assembly. He has worked for more than 5 years in separation science across a variety of purification systems (membrane distillation, nano-filtration, electro-dialysis, reverse osmosis). Ludo also works across a team of researchers at Victoria University on novel pathways to reduce fouling and enhance polymeric membranes chemical resistance. He previously worked on carbon nanotube membranes for fast vapour transport and on nano-lithography techniques based on X-ray irradiation to pattern carbon nanotube surfaces. Although primarily interesteding in nano-separation, Ludo has also previously worked on joint projects on flexible electronics devices fabrication, graphene interface chemistry and advanced composite materials.

Expertise

My expertise primarily lies in the design and engineering of membrane and separation materials. This includes metal, carbon and polymeric materials as well as combinatorial and hybrid materials. I have been primarily working with distillation, electrodialysis and pressure driven separation processes (MF/UF/RO). I have been extensively working with advanced characterization techniques including Synchrotron and Neutron based (SAXS/WAXS, IR mapping, SANS/U-SANS), RBS/PIXE, XRR.
