Conducting Polymer Electrochemistry
Magnesium Alloy Corrosion,
Doug is head of the Energy Program in the ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science. He is currently researching materials that will enable new pathways to generate energy and fuel from sustainable resources (e.g. the sun) and materials that are currently waste or pollutants (e.g. CO2 gas). One of his main focus areas within ACES will be the generation of ‘Solar Fuels’ from nothing more than CO2, water and sunlight.
He was elected to the Australian Academy of Sciences in 2007 and to the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering in 2009. He is currently Chair of the Editorial Advisory Board of the Australian Journal of Chemistry and is a member of the Editorial Advisory Board of Chemical Communications - the flagship journal of the Royal Society of Chemistry. He is also a member of the Editorial Advisory Board of Green Chemistry. He holds Adjunct appointments at the University of Alabama and Queens University, Belfast.
