Dr. Jamie Riches joined the Central Analytical Research Facility, within the Institute for Future Environments, from the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg, Germany. At EMBL he worked within the division of Structural and Computational Biology and undertook research into virus structure by cryo-electron tomography and sub-tomogram averaging. This work was successful in elucidating structural features of viruses including HIV, Marburg virus and Ebola virus.

Prior to this, he has worked at the Centre for Microscopy and Microanalysis at the University of Queensland, collaborating with researchers in the Institute for Molecular Biosciences and in the Nanomaterials Centre. Through these collaborations he has gained extensive experience in the characterisation of a wide range of samples, including virus like particles, quantum dots, mesoporous films and nanocomposite membranes.
