Professor Simon Moulton

Professor of Biomedical Electromaterials Science
PhD, University of Wollongong, Australia; Bachelor of Science (Honours), University of Wollongong, Australia; Bachelor of Technology: Environmental Geochemistry, Macquarie University, Australia


Prof Moulton obtained his PhD from the University of Wollongong (UoW) in December 2002. He then worked (Dec 2002 – Dec 2014) in numerous research positions within the Intelligent Polymer Research Institute (IPRI) and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials where he progressed from junior postdoctoral Fellow to Associate Professor. In December 2014 he was recruited by Swinburne University of Technology (SUT) Melbourne to a strategic appointment of Professor of Biomedical Electromaterials Science. He also holds an Honorary Professor position within the ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES) and Australian Institute of Innovative Materials (AIIM) at UoW. He is also a CI in the ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES) where he contributes to work undertaken within the Synthetic Biosystems and Electrofluidics and Diagnostics programs.
