Personal profile


Current Appointments:

  • Director, Monash Centre for Electron Microscopy, Office of the Pro-Vice Chancellor Research and Research Infrastructure.
  • Professor, Department of Materials Science and Engineering

Research Interests:

Joanne is interested in the development of new methods for determining the atomic structure and bonding in materials using electron microscopy and diffraction. She also applies electron microscopy to investigate structure-property relationships in functional materials, including perovskite, nanostructured and nanoparticle systems.
