Dr Liliana de Campo


Role at ANSTO

Liliana recently joined us as an instrument scientist for our new SANS/USANS instruments BILBY and KOOKABURRA
Her research interests lie mostly in the area of soft condensed matter, with focus on liquid crystalline, multi-compartment and hierarchically structured materials.
