Research Profile

Dr Albert Mau's major research interests lie in photochemistry, photophysics, electrochemistry and surface chemistry. These disciplines allow him to work on the design of security devices, biocompatible materials and membrane reactors.

Dr Albert Mau graduated from Pui-Ching Middle School in Hong Kong. He pursued further education in the USA, where he obtained a BSc degree from Baylor University, Texas, and subsequently, a PhD from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, in 1970.

Dr Mau came to Australia and took up a Research Fellowship at the Research School of Chemistry at the Australian National University in 1971. In 1976 he joined the CSIRO Division of Applied Organic Chemistry, which later became the Division of Chemicals and Polymers, and was renamed Molecular Science in 1997. He currently manages the Applied Chemistry and Polymer Science Program in the Division.
His major research interests lie in photochemistry, photophysics, electrochemistry and surface chemistry. These disciplines allow him to work on the design of security devices, biocompatible materials and membrane reactors.

He is a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Technological Science and Engineering, the Royal Australian Chemical Institute and a Member of the Optical Society of America and the American Photobiological Society. He is currently on the executive committee of the European Photochemistry Association and he serves as a member on the editorial board of Chemistry in Australia. In 1999 he was awarded the inaugural medal of contributing to Science and Technology by developing collaborations between Australia and China by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
