Aprof Tiffany Walsh
Associate Professor of BioNanotechnology
+61 3 522 73116
- Materials modelling of bio/nano interfaces, principally at the molecular level, to make connections between molecular scale details and macroscopic properties.
- Development of efficient molecular simulation approaches for the meaningful study of self-assembly of large biomolecules and their structure-function relationships.
- Application of these approaches to investigate problems ranging from the directed biomolecule-mediated assembly of inorganic nanoparticles, through to modeling the mechanical response of keratin fibres in skin in the presence of molecular additives.
- PhD in Theoretical Chemistry, Department of Chemistry and Darwin College, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, U.K
- Bachelor of Science (Hons.), Chemistry, University of Melbourne, Australia
