Dr Elena Taran completed her PhD at Kyoto University, Japan (November 2006), with a thesis on the effects of pH on silica nanotribology studied by atomic force microscopy (AFM). In 2007, she joined The University of Queensland’s School of Chemical Engineering as a post-doctoral researcher, where she used AFM to study interactions between soft surfaces (bubbles, droplets) with applications in mineral processing. Since January 2009, she has been in charge of the AFM, Raman and confocal laser scanning microscopy facilities at ANFF-Q.
