Dr David Marshall
Science and Engineering Faculty
Chemistry, Physics, Mechanical Engineering
Dr David Marshall completed his PhD (2014) under the supervision of Dr Philip Barker and Professor Stephen Blanksby at the University of Wollongong, studying the fate of radical-scavenging antioxidants in the preservation of painted steel rooftops.
David joined QUT in 2014 as a Postdoctoral Fellow and played a key role in establishing the new Mass Spectrometry Development (MSD) Laboratory within the Central Analytical Research Facility (CARF). David now manages the daily running of the CARF MSD Laboratory, including training users, servicing instrumentation, maintaining a safe workplace, and ensuring the acquisition of high quality mass spectrometry data across a variety of applications for the benefit of clients both within, and external to QUT.
In partnership with local, national, and international collaborative partners, David maintains a keen research interest in fundamental ion chemistry and spectroscopy to determine the structure, energetics and reactivity of gas-phase ions. Moreover, David is interested in the application of these techniques to structure elucidation of synthetic and biological molecules such as lipids, polymers, and supramolecular complexes.more...
