Current Job Title: Marsden Postdoctoral Fellow
Employer: Industrial Research Limited, Wellington.

Since leaving Dunedin I have been employed as a Marsden Postdoctoral Fellow at Industrial Research Limited in Lower Hutt. My research focuses on the properties of helical crystals in natural composite materials such as cellulose and chitin. Being a scientist is a lifestyle choice now days and it is fantastic to have a job that is interesting and where no two days are the same.

I have found that the skills I learnt as an inorganic chemist at the University of Otago have been of daily use to me in my current position. As well as getting a good grounding in chemistry I found Otago a great place to work and play.
