Dr Siobhan Bradley

Research Fellow

Siobhan is a physical chemist with experience in the synthesis, functionalisation and characterisation of light-harvesting materials for solar energy conversion applications. Coming from a nanomaterials and microfluidics background, she now leverages her prior scientific experience with the existing expertise of the ultrafast and microspectroscopy laboratories at the University of Melbourne to design and synthesise light-harvesting systems and figure out their underlying photophysical processes.
