Dr Daeneke focuses his research in the field of surface functionalization of 2D materials, in particular creating new materials with tailored properties.
Materials science and engineering; semiconductors; electronic devices.
Using his experience in surface chemistry, laser spectroscopy and electrochemical characterisation, his work complements the research being conducted in the RMIT Centre for Advanced Electronics and Sensors relating to semiconductor physics and the application of materials in prototype devices.
Dr Daeneke has collaborated extensively with research institutions within Australia (CSIRO, Monash University, The University of Wollongong and The University of Melbourne) as well as in Germany, Switzerland and Japan on international projects which has led to publications in journals such as Nature Chemistry, Journal of the American Chemical Society, ACS Nano and Nano Letters.
Dr Daeneke was awarded a Vice-Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2015 and is based in the School of Engineering.
