Dr Peter Mahon

Senior Lecturer


Peter J. Mahon graduated with a PhD from Deakin University after completing a thesis that investigated various kinetic phenomenon associated with electron-transfer in electrochemical systems under the supervision of Professor Alan M. Bond. Postdoctoral studies in the USA, Monash University and then Canada continued to focus on electrochemical applications. He was recruited by a start-up company based in Sydney to perform industrial research on supercapacitors in conjunction with the CSIRO Division of Energy Technology. He then moved to the Research School of Chemistry at ANU to work in the area of spectro-electrochemistry.
