Dr Joanne Harrison
A/Discipline Leader, ASW Sensors
Maritime Division, Sonar Technology & Systems – Defence Science and Technology.
Joanne did her undergraduate degree at the Flinders University of South Australia, majoring in physics and mathematics. After participating in the Australian National University’s summer scholarship programme at the end of her Bachelor’s degree, Joanne stayed on at the ANU to do Honours and then a PhD at the Research School of Physical Sciences and Engineering. Her honours project, in the Atomic and Molecular Physics Laboratory, was on time of flight spectroscopy for measuring electron collision cross sections in gases. Her PhD project, in the Laser Physics Centre, was on the photodynamics of the nitrogen vacancy colour centre in diamonds. This included building a laser scanning confocal fluorescence microscope to study the photodynamics of individual colour centres. Joanne then spent 3 years as a postdoc at the University of Bristol, where she built another confocal microscope and contributed to a large European collaboration working on diamond-based quantum technologies. Joanne joined DST Group in January of 2011, and since then has been working in the advanced undersea sensors lab where she works on both the practical and the fundamental aspects of fibre laser sensing.
