Curriculum: 

Meganne Christian is a post-doctoral researcher in the field of graphene research at IMM-CNR, where she has been working since 2014. She was awarded her PhD in Industrial Chemistry in 2014 from the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. She completed her Bachelor of Engineering in Industrial Chemistry at the same university in 2009, for which she was awarded Honours Class 1 and the University Medal. Meganne has 10 papers in academic journals (5 with impact factor >6) as well as 7 international conference oral presentations and 7 posters. She has received a number of awards, including the Dean's Award for Excellence in Postgraduate Research for her doctoral studies, the UNSW Research Excellence Award, the National Postgraduate Student Energy Award from the Australian Institute of Energy, and best presentation/poster awards at 4 international conferences. Her current expertise is in Scanning Electron Microscopy and Chemical Vapour Deposition, and she is skilled in a wide range of other laboratory synthetic and analytical techniques.
