Dr. Jenny Forrester was awarded a Ph.D. in Materials Engineering 2003 at the University of Newcastle in Australia. The research was based on advanced X-ray and neutron diffraction studies under extreme environments of ferroelectric ceramics. Powder and single crystal diffraction experiments were performed using a variety of laboratory-based and national laboratory X-ray and neutron sources in Australia, France, and the United Kingdom.
She has more than twenty years of experience in data collection using X-ray diffraction, and has analyzed the results using a variety of crystallographic techniques. She has used Rietveld refinement to examine initial crystal structures, and differences that result from atom substitutions and changes in environment.
Jenny has previously worked at the University of Leeds, UK, in a similar role, and has held a research position at the University of Florida, after several years of materials research in Australia. Teaching experience includes materials science lectures, laboratory classes and demonstrations, and instruction in the use of instruments and analysis.
