Biography: Professor Gordon Wallace's research interests include organic
conductors, nanomaterials and electrochemical probe methods of analysis
and the use of these in the development of intelligent polymer systems.
A current focus involves the use of these tools and materials in
developing biocommunications from the molecular to skeletal domains in
order to improve human performance via medical Bionics.

Gordon is a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science, Australian
Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering (ATSE), Institute of
Physics, and Royal Australian Chemical Institute (RACI). He received the
Inaugural Polymer Science and Technology Award from the Royal Australian
Chemical Institute (RACI) in 1992; the RACI Stokes Medal for Research in
Electrochemistry in 2004; and the HG Smith Memorial award from the RACI
in 2008. He was awarded an ETS Walton Fellowship by the Science
Foundation Ireland in 2003; named NSW Scientist of the Year (Chemistry)
in 2008; appointed as a Professor in the World Class University by the
South Korean Government in 2009; received the SPIE Smart Materials
Research Lifetime Achievement Award in the USA in March 2009 and was
honoured with the 2009 Smart Structures and Materials Lifetime
Achievement Award.

He has published more than 600 refereed publications; a monograph (3rd
Edition published in 2009) on Conductive Electroactive Polymers:
Intelligent Polymer Systems and co-authored a monograph on Organic
Bionics (published 2012). Gordon has supervised more than 65 PhD
students to completion.

Gordon completed his undergraduate (1979) and PhD (1983) degrees at
Deakin University. And was awarded a DSc from Deakin University in 2000.
He was appointed as a Professor at the University of Wollongong in 1990.
He was awarded an ARC Professorial Fellowship in 2002; an ARC Federation
Fellowship in 2006 and ARC Laureate Fellowship in 2011.
