Biographical entry Barnard, Amanda (1971 - )

Computational physicist


Dr Amanda Barnard obtained her PhD in 2003 from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) for her work in computer modelling which predicted and explained the different forms of nanocarbon at various sizes. From 2003 to 2005, she was a postdoctoral fellow at the Centre for Nanoscale Materials in Argonne National, USA. She continued her research at the University of Oxford, UK, from 2005 to 2008 after being awarded an Extraordinary Junior Research Fellowship and a Violette & Samuel Glasstone Fellowship. Barnard used this time to generate computer simulations that sought to reveal what environments were required to create certain types of nanoparticles. This area of study led her to research the possible risks of nanoparticles outside a laboratory environment, a recurrent theme in her research. In 2009 Barnard took up a position as a research scientist at CSIRO Material Science and Engineering.
