Dr David Marshall
Office of the PVC, Research Infrastructure
Dr David Marshall completed his PhD (2014) under the supervision of Dr Philip Barker and Professor Stephen Blanksby at the University of Wollongong, studying the fate of radical-scavenging antioxidants in the preservation of painted steel rooftops. David joined QUT in 2014 as a Postdoctoral Fellow and played a key role in establishing the new Mass Spectrometry Development (MSD) Laboratory within the Central Analytical Research Facility (CARF). Now a Research Infrastructure Specialist, David is committed to developing cutting-edge mass spectrometry methods to support QUT researchers and external clients.
Applying strategic and technical expertise in molecular mass spectrometry, David empowers HDR end-users through collaborative project development and tailored instrument training, ensuring the acquisition of high-quality data to strengthen research outputs. Evaluating user requirements and technological developments, David is also responsible for managing current instrumentation operations and contributing to future innovative advances in mass spectrometry at QUT.
In partnership with local and international collaborators, David maintains a keen research interest in fundamental ion chemistry and spectroscopy to determine the structure, energetics, and reactivity of gaseous ions. Moreover, David is interested in applying these techniques to structure elucidation of synthetic and biological materials such as lipids, polymers, and molecular machinery.
