Senior Resarch Fellow, University of Wollongong, Wollongong, NSW, Australia

Dave has completed the installation, commissioning and roll-out of a new JEOL ARM200F TEM/STEM. The instrument is fitted with a cold FEG source and a large Area (1 steradian) JEOL EDS detector and a GIF. It is single (probe) aberration corrected, and is the first JEOL aberration corrected TEM/STEM to be installed in Australia. The instrument is fully supported by Dave and one colleague, giving internal and external users access to high-end characterisation capabilities.

During his time at Sasol he managed the fit-out and commissioning of a high-performance dedicated microscopy faciity designed to house a new TEM/STEM and two exisiting Zeiss SEMs. He commissioned and rolled out an FEI Osiris/ChemiSTEM instrument with a Tridiem GIF. He also made extensive use of the double corrected JEOL ARM200F at Nelson Mandella Metropolitan University in Port Elizabeth.

2009-2011: TEM Manager and Acting Laboratory Manager, Australian Centre for Microscopy and Microanalysis, University of Sydney, Australia. Dave managed the installation of three new TEMs and the restoration of a dedicated STEM. These included: JEOL 2200FS, JEOL 2100CR, JEOL 1400 and VG HB601UX respectively.
