Ann Roberts's Profile Picture
Prof

Ann Roberts

 

Ann Roberts obtained B.Sc. (with First Class Honours and University Medal) and Ph.D. degrees in physics from the University of Sydney in Australia.

After a position as a postdoctoral associate in the School of Electrical Engineering at Cornell University, she took up an academic position in the School of Physics at the University of Melbourne where she is now Professor. Professor Roberts has diverse research interests in physical optics and photonics. In particular, she has made significant advances in the computational and experimental study of plasmonic devices, metamaterials and nanoscale antennas. Professor Roberts' research interests also include the development of novel microscopic and imaging techniques and their application to the non-destructive examination of specimens such as live cells, photonic devices and cultural materials. She is a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Physics (and former Victorian Branch Chair), a Member of the Australian Optical Society (and former President), a Member of the SPIE and a Fellow the OSA.
