Biography

Graeme Moad obtained his BSc (Hons, First Class, 1974) and PhD (1978) from the University of Adelaide in organic free radical chemistry. Between 1977 and 1979, he undertook post-doctoral research at Pennsylvania State University with Prof Steven J. Benkovic in the field of biological organic chemistry. He joined CSIRO in 1979 where he is currently a CSIRO fellow. Dr Moad is (co)author of over 200 publications, co-inventor on 35 patent families and co-author of the book “The Chemistry of Radical Polymerization”. His research interests lie in the fields of polymerization mechanisms, and polymer design and synthesis. In recognition of his work Dr Moad was awarded a CSIRO medal in 2003, the RACI’s Battaerd-Jordan Polymer Medal in 2012, a Clunies Ross Award and a Thomson-Reuters' Citation Laureate in 2014, a Warwick University IAS Fellowship, a CSIRO Newton-Turner award and Thomson-Reuters' highly cited list in 2015 and the David Craig Medal in 2020. Dr Moad is currently also an adjunct professor at Monash University, and an honorary professor at the Beijing University of Chemical Technology. He is an Associate Member of the IUPAC Polymer Division and the Division representative on the International Committee for Terminology, Nomenclature and Standards (ICTNS). He is a Fellow of the Royal Australian Chemical Institute and the Australian Academy of Science.
