Role at ANSTO
Dr Zhaoming Zhang is a principal research scientist in the Nuclear Fuel Cycle research theme. She joined ANSTO in 1993 after obtaining her Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Yale University. Since then, she has led and participated in a wide range of research activities, ranging from fundamental studies in surface science and crystallography to more applied topics such as the development of nuclear waste form materials. She has utilised a significant number of characterisation techniques, especially synchrotron- and neutron-based methods, to tackle problems in the areas of physics, chemistry and materials science. She has published more than 100 refereed research articles in international journals and 2 book chapters.
