Dr. Joanne Etheridge is the Director of the Monash Centre for Electron Microscopy and Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Monash University. She obtained her degree and PhD in physics at the University of Melbourne and RMIT University, respectively. She then held appointments at the University of Cambridge in the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy and Newnham College, including a Rosalind Franklin Research Fellowship and a Royal Society University Research Fellowship. She returned to Melbourne to join Monash University where she established the Monash Centre for Electron Microscopy (MCEM). Her research interests are in the development of new methods for determining the atomic structure and bonding in materials using electron microscopy and diffraction. This includes interests in the theory, interpretation and application of electron microscopy and diffraction using sub-Ångström electron beams. She also applies electron microscopy to investigate structure-property relationships in functional materials, including perovskite, nanostructured and nanoparticle systems.
