Michael Jones completed his PhD (2010 ) in nonlinear optics at QUT under the supervision of A/Prof Esa Jaatinen. He took an ARC Super Science Fellowship at La Trobe University with Professors Andrew Peele and Leann Tilley in the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coherent X-ray Science. In this position he earned his stripes in Synchrotron Science, designing and undertaking dozens of experiments at synchrotron facilities around the world with a focus on developing novel imaging techniques for biological sciences. In 2014 Dr Jones was appointed to the Australian Synchrotron, working as an Australian Synchrotron Fellow on the X-ray Fluorescence Microscopy beamline, where he worked collaboratively with many researchers on a diverse range of problems from biology to electrochemistry. In 2018, he was appointed to the position of Research Infrastructure Specialist in Synchrotron Science and continues to answer a diverse range of research questions using synchrotron science.
