  • Dr Peter Sherrell completed his Ph.D (Chemistry) from the Intelligent Polymer Research Institute at the University of Wollongong in 2012 entitled "Carbon nanotube architectures with metallic nanoparticles towards energy applications”.

    In 2012 Dr Sherrell undertook a postdoctoral position in the Institute for Technical Medicine at Linköping University, where he focussed on incorporating conductive carbon nanomaterials into natural polymer hydrogels, targeting nerve, cardiac, and ocular tissue engineering applications. Dr Sherrell then moved to Imperial College London as a Horizon 2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellow in the Mattevi Research Group in the Department of Materials in 2015 where his research focused on the designer chemical and spatial structuring of graphene, and ‘beyond graphene’, 2D materials.

    Dr Sherrell joined the Ellis Research Group in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Melbourne in 2019 as a Research Fellow in Electronic Materials.
