Biography

Dr. Dalton has worked in a wide range of scientific areas, from fundamental science in critical theory in condensed matter and cavitation in microfluidics to industrial interactions of material reliability and corrosion for telecommunications.

Dr. Daltons has worked on the production and characterisation of nanomaterials, including - ultra-long nanowire, atomic folding in structure of biomaterial and the production of thermoelectric nanowire for micro-cooling of laser platforms. He is also active in the area of electronic reliability, specifically; solder joint structure reliability for space applications and development of the new IPC creep corrosion standard.

Currently he is researching in the area of thermal management of electronics using advanced evaporation-based thermal management as well as advanced integrated material for addressable cooling of fibre optic lasers and the development of phase-changing thermal interface material for microelectronic cooling.

Dr. Dalton has worked with a larger number of international companies as a collaborator in programs such as Centres for Science, Engineering & Technology (CSETs), Industrial lead research programs (ILRP) and innovation partnerships, Furthermore Dr. Dalton has engaged a number companies in a consultancy capacity.
