Personal profile


Toby is a Senior Lecturer in Physical and Analytical Chemistry at Monash University.

He is head of the Bell Fluorescence Lab situated in the School of Chemistry.

Toby's main research interests are:

  • Development and application of single molecule fluorescence techniques, especially super-resolution microscopy
  • Time and space resolved fluorescence spectroscopy including energy transfer (FRET)

Current research areas include: 

  • Investigating 'off-target' effects in cells from anticancer drugs
  • Revealing how viruses modify and repurpose cellular components and organelles
  • Mapping epigenetic modifications in the cell nuceleus 
  • Understanding how energy is transported around in multi-chromophoric dye molecules, polymer chains and nanoparticles
