Sean was appointed as the General Manager for the Melbourne Centre for Nanofabrication and the Victorian Node of the Australian National Fabrication Facility (ANFF-VIC) in May 2017. He was previously a Senior Process Engineer at MCN.
Sean completed his Bachelors degrees in Chemical Engineering and Environmental Engineering from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2005. He also holds a masters (2007) and a PhD (2010) in Chemical Engineering from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
During his graduate studies, he focused mainly on novel applications of acoustics for pumping in microfluidic systems and methods for modular microfluidic assembly. Sean came to Melbourne in early 2011 as a postdoctoral fellow in the MicroNanophysics Research Laboratory (MNRL) under Professors James Friend (UCSD) and Leslie Yeo (RMIT), where he worked to develop surface acoustic wave actuators for a variety of microfluidic applications.
In his spare time, you will find Sean using his skills in precision engineering for far more romantic endevours - making and playing classical guitars.
