Separation science impacts on almost every facet of our lives, including medicine, pharmaceuticals, environmental sciences and industries like oil refining and food production.  Professor Paull will explain separation science – the study and development of technologies to enable the physical separation of molecules, compounds and elements – and the resulting breakthrough technologies and applications.  Professor Brett Paull is Professor in the Australian Centre for Research on Separation Sciences based in the University of Tasmania’s School of Chemistry. He graduated from the University of Plymouth with BSc (Honours) and PhD and is a Fellow of the Royal College of Chemistry. His first lectureship was with the University of Tasmania from 1995-1997 after which he moved to Dublin City University as Associate Professor of Analytical Science. He rejoined the University of Tasmania in 2011.
