Ron White is Node Director and Chief Investigator in the ARC Centre of Excellence for Antimatter-Matter Studies (CAMS). He is Theme 3 Leader within CAMS focussed on the application of positrons in biology and medicine.
More broadly Ron White's group is focussed on the modelling and simulation of non-equilibrium transport processes of charged particles in gases, soft-condensed and disordered materials.
Ron is also a member of the Rapid Assessment Joint Venture between JCU and DAAF (formerly Department of Primary Industries) focussed on the non-invasive assessment of food qualilty and security.

Positron Nano-Dosimetry: Fundamental Measurements of Positron Interactions and their use in State-of-the-Art Modelling of Positron Transport
- Indicative Funding
- $161,667 over 3 years (administered by ANU)
- This proposal will provide unique experimental and theoretical information on how positrons - the electron antiparticle - interact with matter, in particular with biologically important molecules. This data will be used in a unique set of modelling approaches which will provide, for the first time, an insight into how positrons are transported through gases, liquids and ultimately, soft matter. It will thus have important ramifications for diagnostic tools such as Positron Emission Tomography. The fundamental research will also shed light on one of the key 'mysteries' of life - why the biological building blocks of life possess a definite "handedness", or chirality.
