Groups at Warwick


  • Bachelor of Science (Honours), BSc (Hons) from Swinburne University of Technology (Australia)
  • Doctor of Philosophy (Chemistry), PhD from Monash University (Australia)
  • Senior Research Fellow (02/2020 – present), University of Warwick (U.K.)
  • Ramsay Memorial Research Fellow (10/2018 – present), University of Warwick (U.K.)
  • Marie Curie Research Fellow (10/2016 – 10/2018), University of Warwick (U.K.)
  • Endeavour Research Fellow (03/2016 – 09/2016), University of Warwick (U.K.)
  • Postdoctoral Research Assistant (09/2015 – 01/2016), Monash University (Australia)

My research employs scanning electrochemical cell microscopy (SECCM) to probe nanoscale electrochemistry. Current projects include:

  • Applying SECCM in non-aqueous (aprotic solvent) electrolytes
  • Correlating microscopic structure, composition and porosity with electrocatalytic activity in electrodeposited thin films
  • Probing the role of defects in hydrated proton (H+) transport through graphene
  • Understanding substrate and ensemble effects in electrocatalytic and energy storage (battery) materials
  • Studying the role of oxygen in metal corrosion in an aqueous nanodroplet configuration

I am currently interested in:

  • Electroanalytical chemistry
  • Electrocatalysis
  • Nanoelectrochemistry
  • Nanomaterials
  • Single-entity electrochemistry

Cameron teaches in the following modules:

  • CH3F1 - Advanced Physical Chemistry and Laboratory (labs: Dynamic Electrochemistry)
  • CH3F7/CH416 - Energy (lectures: Electrochemical Energy Technologies)
  • CH914 - Electrochemistry and Sensors (labs and lectures: Dynamic Electrochemistry)

I am co-supervising the following PhD students:

  • Binglin Tao, Electrochemical Imaging of Energy Storage and Conversion Materials
  • Enrico Daviddi, Nanoscale Correlative Electrochemical Imaging: New Approaches to Understanding Metal Reactivity and Corrosion

At the moment I am unable to accept any further applications at the University of Warwick, but will be moving to Monash University (Australia) in November 2020. I have two PhD studentships (Project 1 and Project 2) available in my group at Monash, so please get in contact with me if you are interested.
