Biography

Dr Damien Callahan is a Senior Lecturer in Chemistry in the School of Life and Environmental Sciences at Deakin University (Melbourne, Australia). His research spans analytical mass spectrometry, metabolomics, chemical ecology and applied research on metal hyperaccumulating plants and microalgal lipid biochemistry. He has more than 20 years experience in analytical chemistry in both industry and academic environments. His research has advanced the methodology used for small molecule and lipid analysis in the rapidly progressing omics fields. More recently his work has expanded to chemical ecology with field-based projects including a campaign on the RV Investigator, the CSIRO marine research vessel. His laboratory comprises a suite of state-of-the-art mass spectrometry equipment enabling elemental, small molecule and protein analysis. Dr Callahan is also passionate about teaching chemistry at both under-graduate and post-graduate levels.
