Prior to join in MCN in March 2013, John worked as a Sales Manager for Coherent Scientific Pty. Ltd. and was responsible for sales, marketing, installation and training for Nikon microscopes, including laser-based microscopes. John brings to MCN a lot of experience in customer service, having spent many years working in this field in both local and international companies.
He also brings significant technical expertise, and since 2004, he has installed more than 20 Nikon Confocal systems in Victoria including the A1 system at MCN.
John specialises in optical microscopy with digital imaging, confocal microscopes, Nikon NIS Elements software and new generation, super resolution systems.
John is responsible for managing the optical microscopy laboratory at MCN. His other main responsibility as MCN Client Service Manager is to look after MCN’s clientele, assist with customer queries and conduct the MCN General Inductions for new and existing clients.
John holds a PhD in Physics (majoring optics and lasers) from Macquarie University.
His secret superhero power is his ability to enjoy swimming every morning, whatever the weather, and he hopes that by the end of the year, he’ll have swum the equivalent of Melbourne to Tasmania – 340km!
Please contact him if you have any questions regarding optical microscopies, digital imaging solutions for microscopes, software issues for confocals and applications for these technologies in your research areas.
