Biography:

Adam completed his Bachelor degree in 2010 and PhD degree in 2015 at Swinburne University in Melbourne, Australia, focussing on optics and plasmonic particles. Primarily, he focused on quantifying how femtosecond laser pulses interact with plasmonic nanoparticles, either driving non-linear emission, or causing sub-melting point thermal reshaping. Adam moved to Eindhoven University as a post-doc in 2016 in the group of Prof. Menno Prins, where he developed a technique to all optically resolve the geometry of gold nanoparticles using a DNA based super-resolution technique. Recently, he began a new post-doc in the group of Prof. Ilja Voets, where he will again employ DNA based super-resolution, though now to reveal the physics of how anti-freeze proteins bind to ice crystals, and inhibit or direct their growth.

Research Interests:
I currently focus my research on DNA-based super resolution techniques, combined with interferometric nanoparticle detection, plasmonic nanoparticle physics, ice formation physics, and quantitative biophysics.
