Gerd E. Schröder-Turk is an Associate Professor in the School of Engineering and Information Technology at Murdoch University. He holds a doctoral degree (2005) from the Australian National University, Canberra and a habilitation degree (2013) from the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg in Germany. His research interest revolve around the geometric structure, often on the nanometer-scale, of both synthetic materials and biological materials. He refers to his area of research as ‘materials geometry’, with a view to expressing the importance of geometric structure for understanding function and properties of materials.
