Profile: Jane Dai

Visiting Professor from Deakin University
Xiujuan Jane Dai received her PhD degree in plasma physics from the Australian National University. She also has MSc and BSc degrees in plasma physics and semiconductor physics from China. Her research has focused on the development of novel plasma technologies and methodologies, and the development of materials with new functionality, for applications ranging from energy, biomedicine and nanotechnology, to composites, transport and textiles. A persistent theme has been the improved understanding of underlying mechanisms through surface characterization, analysis and diagnostics. She was an invited speaker at the Gordon Research Conference (USA) on plasma science & technology in 2000, and joint recipient of the CSIRO Research Medal and a NanoVic Prize in 2006 for her work on carbon nanotubes. She has established a new plasma laboratory at IFM since joining Deakin University in 2009 and leads the plasma research group. She is committed to helping young scientists grow and to bringing different experts together in a harmonious working environment.
