A/Prof. Trevor Smith is a spectroscopist in the School of Chemistry at the University of Melbourne. His primary interests are the development of super-resolution optical imaging methods and the use of ultrafast laser spectroscopy and time-resolved microscopy to study fast chemical processes, including energy transfer, electron transfer and excitons in polymers, nanocrystals and other materials.
