Peter Kingshott is Professor in The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne. He is also Deputy Director of the ARC Industrial Training Centre in Surface Engineering for Advanced Materials (SEAM). His research has a strong emphasis on controlling the interfacial interactions of biological materials with advanced material surfaces. The focus is on the development of new 1, 2 and 3D surface micro- and nanopatterning approaches aimed at improving our understanding of how biology and man-made materials interact with each other. Application areas include: medical implants, infection control, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, and industrial biofouling. He has published over 190 papers and has a H-Index of 52 and over 9000 citations. He research has also included focus on developing surfaces for industrial applications where he has 10 patents/patent applications.
