    Our program is not confirmed but it is hoped to be: Dr David Cookson - Synchrotron & Sovereign Capability

    Role at ANSTO

    After completing a PhD at Monash University under an AINSE scholarship, David worked for Kodak Australasia in the early 1990s. He then moved back into basic research, working to further Australia’s national scientific interests first in Japan (Australian National Beamline Facility at the Photon Factory) and then in the US (Australian Synchrotron Research Program at the Advanced Photon Source, Chicago).

    In 2007 Australia finished building its own world-class synchrotron and David returned home. To complement his role in the NISE team, he is also an adjunct Associate Professor with the University of Melbourne School of Chemistry.

    Helping NST engage with industry and external organizations, and applying its world-class research capabilities to real-world problems is now David’s personal and professional mission.
