Pete Halley PhD
I am the director of the Centre for High Performance Polymers, Australian Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology, The University of Queensland, Australia.
My core research fields are rheology, processing and product development of biopolymers and nanostructured polymers.
This work has developed from research in the Centre for High Performance Polymers (CHPP), which links labs from diverse fields such as chemical engineering, chemistry, materials engineering, mechanical engineering, dentistry, anatomy and biomedical sciences.
This research includes multiphase polymers, polymer nanocomposites, renewable biopolymers for high value manufacturing and biomedical applications, and novel polymer processing methods for nanostructured and biopolymers.
