Tim White

Professor of Materials Science

Bio

<p> <span>Tim White is a Professor of Materials Science at Nanyang Technological University where he teaches crystallography, electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction to undergraduate and graduate students.&nbsp; His research encompasses mineralogy, clean energy materials, environmental remediation, nuclear waste disposal and catalysis, where synchrotron X-ray and neutron scattering methods probe atomic-scale symmetry.&nbsp; In 2006, he introduced a suite of teaching modules for materials scientists called <i>On-line Micro- and Nano-characterisation Instruction</i></span><span><span> (OMNI) that were extended by the Australian Learning and Teaching Council to create <i>MyScope</i>, a national curriculum for blended learning in microscopy and imaging (</span><a href="http://www.ammrf.org.au/myscope/">http://www.ammrf.org.au/myscope/</a><span> ). <span>Tim developed the first comprehensive on-line course at NTU called Symmetry and Crystals from which this MOOC on <i>Beauty, Form and Function: An Exploration of Symmetry</i> evolved.</span></span></span></p> <p> </p>
