Director of MCEM


Joanne Etheridge joined Monash University in 2002 as a Senior Lecturer and subsequently led the establishment of the Monash Centre for Electron Microscopy

Visiting Professor, Brockhouse Institute, McMaster University, Canada 2005 - 2008
Royal Society University Research Fellow, Dept of Materials Science and Metallurgy, University of Cambridge, UK 1999 - 2003
Fellow, Newnham College, University of Cambridge 1999 - 2002
Senior Research Associate, Dept of Materials Science and Metallurgy, University of Cambridge 1997 - 1998
Rosalind Franklin Research Fellow, Newnham Collage & Dept of Materials Science & Metallurgy, University of Cambridge 1994 - 1997

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.

She has particular interests in the theory and application of atomic resolution electron microscopy and diffraction using electron beams which can be focussed to a diameter smaller than an atom.

PhD Projects

A range of projects are available in the above areas. Please contact Prof. Etheridge for further information.
