About David

David has experience in drafting and prosecution of patent applications in chemistry and applied chemistry both in Australia and overseas. He has drafted and prosecuted applications in a range of fields including mining technologies, nanoscale drug delivery systems, plasticisers, paint compositions, pharmaceuticals and cement technologies.

Prior to joining Phillips Ormonde Fitzpatrick, David completed his undergraduate degree in Nanotechnology (Hons Class I) at the University of New South Wales (UNSW), for which he was awarded the university medal. This experience gave David a strong grounding in the fundamentals of multidisciplinary science including physics, biology, chemistry and materials science. During his Honours year, he studied self-assembled hydrogels as potential drug carriers against cancer cells.

David then went on to complete a PhD at UNSW, where his thesis investigated light harvesting bioconjugates as photosynthetic mimics. David developed deep cross-disciplinary experience in protein chemistry, organic chemistry, polymer chemistry and imaging techniques, including electron and fluorescence microscopy. David was also awarded the Cornforth Medal for the most outstanding PhD thesis in chemistry.

David’s research has been presented at many local and international conferences, including the American Chemical Society National Meeting in San Diego, USA, as well as Pacifichem in Hawaii, USA. His work has received awards at both national and international conferences, in addition to receiving a research excellence award from UNSW. David’s work has also been featured in several high-impact journals, and he has published a book chapter for the Royal Society of Chemistry.

 

在加入POF之前,大卫完成了他的本科学位(纳米技术)在新南威尔斯大学(UNSW)被授予大学奖章。该奖章是颁发给在学术课程非常杰出的成绩本科生。继续他的学业(Honours),大卫在UNSW化学学院与悉尼大学的澳大利亚显微镜和微量分析中心合作完成了他的论文。他研究了自组装水凝胶作为药物载体治疗癌症。

 

大卫完成了他的博士学位在UNSW,他研究的是人造光合利用蛋白质。在他的博士研究时期,他学到了许多化学经验包括蛋白质化学,有机化学,高分子化学和电子显微镜技术。

 

大卫的研究发表在许多的国内和国际会议包括第243美国化学学会全国会议和Pacifichem。他的研究获得许多国内和国际会议的奖章。他的研究也被刊登在几个高影响力化学期刊和一本书章节。在2013年,大卫荣获康福思奖章 (Cornforth Medal)。康福思奖章是表彰澳大利亚最优秀的化学博士论文。
