Simon is the Facility manager of the South Australian ANFF node and has a background in materials engineering and joining. He has over twenty years experience in product design and development and was recently in industry as a development manager for a medical device company. He has worked with the CSIRO in the Division of Manufacturing Science and Technology and with a start-up medical device company involved with catheter tracking technologies.
Prof Thomas NannNode Director - University of South Australia, SA node
Thomas Nann is the director of the ANFF SA node. He joined the Ian Wark Research Institute in June 2010 and previously held the Chair in Nanosciences at the University of East Anglia (UEA), UK. His work at UEA was focussed on the synthesis of novel nanomaterials and their application in bioanalysis and energy harvesting. He received his PhD in 1997 from the University of Freiburg, Germany.
Dr Luke ParkinsonMicrofluidics Engineer: Scientific Services - University of South Australia, SA node
Luke has recently completed a PhD in Applied Science (Minerals and Materials) at the Wark, with interests in micro and nanoscale fluidic flow, mineral processing and interfacial science. Luke holds a BSc Degree from the University of Adelaide (Physiology, Pharmacology) with Honours (Physiology) from the University of Queensland. Luke is also a metal machinist with substantial experience in mechanical design engineering and machining for lapidary, tooling and scientific instrumentation.
Dr Craig PriestDeputy Node Director - University of South Australia, SA node
Dr Craig Priest is the deputy director of the South Australian node. As s Research Fellow at The Wark, he is focused on the role of functional interfaces in controlling liquid samples within microfluidic channels and developing new opportunities for exploiting microfluidic devices to drive process intensification in industry. He is also a member of the South Australian Government's Premier's Science and Industry Council, the Access Committee for the South Australian node of the Australian National Fabrication Facility, and is an elected member of the Executive Policy and Planning Committee of the Ian Wark Research Institute (UniSA).
