Dr. Robert Chapman is a Lecturer and ARC DECRA fellow, working in the School of Chemistry and the Centre for Advanced Macromolecular Design (CAMD). Robert uses enzymes to design multivalent polymer-peptide conjugates for protein binding applications and to design novel biosensors for the detection of disease. He has expertise in well controlled polymerisation techniques, the self assembly of polymer and peptide based nanomaterials, and in nanoparticle based biosensing.

Background: Robert completed a BE in Industrial Chemistry at UNSW in 2007 and a PhD in Chemistry at the University of Sydney in 2013, where he studied the synthesis and self assembly of cyclic peptide - polymer conjugates under Prof. Sebastien Perrier. He subsequently worked as a research associate in the lab of Prof. Molly Stevens at Imperial College London (2013-15) on the development of nanomaterial based biosensors and scaffolds for tissue engineering, before returning to UNSW in 2016.
