Professor Gordon Wallace

Australian Research Council Laureate Fellow

Executive Research Director of the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science.

Director of the Intelligent Polymer Research Institute, University of Wollongong.

Director of the Australian National Fabrication Facility, Materials Node.

Professor Gordon Wallace’s research interests include organic conductors, nanomaterials and electrochemical probe methods of analysis and the use of these in the development of intelligent polymer systems. A current focus involves the use of these tools and materials in developing biocommunications from the molecular to skeletal domains in order to improve human performance via medical Bionics.

He has published more than 700 refereed publications; a monograph (3rd Edition published in 2009) on Conductive Electroactive Polymers: Intelligent Polymer Systems and co-authored a monograph on Organic Bionics (published 2012). Gordon has supervised more than 84 PhD students to completion. Gordon has recently (2014) co-authored an eBook on 3D BioPrinting.

Gordon completed his undergraduate (1979) and PhD (1983) degrees at Deakin University. And was awarded a DSc from Deakin University in 2000. He was appointed as a Professor at the University of Wollongong in 1990. He was awarded an ARC Professorial Fellowship in 2002; an ARC Federation Fellowship in 2006 and ARC Laureate Fellowship in 2011.
