Harry Quiney is currently Senior Research Fellow in the Faculty of Science at The University of Melbourne. Professor Quiney conducts research in theoretical atomic, molecular and condensed matter physics. He received a D.Phil. from the University of Oxford and was a Lecturer in Chemistry at Wadham College for many years. He is currently applying the methods of theoretical physics and mathematics to problems in structural biology and to the challenge of capturing dynamical information about biological processes using X-ray free-electron laser sources. He is a member of the Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics group at the University of Melbourne and leads a group within the ARC Centre of Excellence for Advanced Molecular Imaging. This is an interdisciplinary, long-term collaboration involving physicists, mathematicians, biologists and chemists who have pooled their efforts to advance knowledge in the field of immunology.
