Dr Rosalie Hocking

Senior Lecturer


Rosalie Hocking is a chemist whose research is aimed at the development of electrochemical devices to make commodity chemicals (like hydrogen and ammonia) from solar-derived electricity. Her work makes extensive use of the Australian Synchrotron where she uses X-rays to find out how new materials work, and why sometimes they don’t!  She is also researching the development cheap sensor devices that would provide instantaneous chemical information, important in applications like Asbestos identification on building sites.  Rosalie completed her PhD in physical and inorganic chemistry from the University Sydney in 2004. She has since held positions Stanford University/Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory, CSIRO Land and Water, Monash University and James Cook University before coming to Swinburne University of Technology.  She is currently a senior lecturer in chemistry and deputy department chair of Chemistry and Biotechnology.
