Role at ANSTO
Dr Jason Price has a background in Inorganic Supramolecular Chemistry and has been working at the two Australian Synchrotron Macromolecular Crystallography (MX) beamlines since 2011 as an Instrument Scientist focusing on the concerns of the Chemical Crystallography (CX) user base. He has made important inroads in developing the accessibility of these two beamlines both in terms of capability of hardware, and software infrastructure (as both beamlines were predominantly designed with a macromolecular crystallography focus). This is while participating in the most challenging crystallography research problems the Australasian community bring to the Synchrotron MX beamlines.
His current interests lie in increasing sample throughput (data acquisition –> structure solution), making best use of the latest innovative research infrastructure available for single-crystal X-ray analysis while assuring there is no decrease in the quality of the user outcomes.
