Dr Paul Molino

Dr Paul Molino completed his PhD in Botany at the University of Melbourne, Australia in 2008. He comes to the Steel Research Hub having successfully completed a UOW Vice Chancellors Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at the Intelligent Polymer Research Institute (IPRI), ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science. His research interests include studying fundamental biomolecular and cellular interactions with nanostructured materials using a range of microscopy techniques and microgravimetric surface sensing techniques. He is interested in the design of biomaterials to promote beneficial protein and cellular interactions, as well as developing ultra-low fouling materials and coatings for both biomedical and environmental applications.
