Welcome to my personal research web-page. Opinions expressed are my own. My Researcher Profile hosted at the University of Adelaide is my official University web page.

Dr Bryan Coad is a Senior Research Fellow (Senior Mortlock Fellow) at the School of Agriculture, Food and Wine at the University of Adelaide,. He leads a, multidisciplinary research group at the intersection of physical chemistry, materials science, and biology. This group works towards developing bioactive, nano-engineered material surface coatings and biomaterials through fundamental research and industry-linked projects. Impacts of his research have contributed to improving health & medicine, the environment, and benefited the food sector (agriculture & horticulture).

Dr Coad is also the Research Director for the End Food Waste Cooperative Research Centre. He contributes to the management of $66 M in industry cash and government investment dedicated towards ensuring research excellence is translated into impactful products, services, technologies and policies that see Australia’s food waste halved by 2030.

He is an experienced supervisor & mentor and has contributed to training more than 35 scientists at various levels.

For more than 10 years, he has been active as a leader in the biomaterials community and has served as President of the Australasian Society for Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering (ASBTE).

My research has both academic and industry impact. Research themes include

  • Discovering new methods and technologies that contribute to Australia’s goal of reducing food waste
  • Applying new technologies to find solutions for food, horticultural, pharmaceutical, and medical industries
  • Developing advanced materials, coatings and interfaces

I am known for

  • Research excellence in plasma processes (over 40 publications, 10 research grants, 4 industry projects)
  • Managing and directing academic/industry research projects
  • My research leadership and mentorship of trainees

I am interested in

  • Discussing new academic collaborative research projects
  • Collaborating with industries and solving challenges with innovative research solutions
  • Supervising trainees at all levels
