Rou Jun Toh obtained her PhD in Chemistry and Biological Chemistry (2017) from Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore, where she established herself in the field of materials for electrochemical sensing and energy applications. In 2017, she moved to Melbourne, Australia to join the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) as a postdoctoral research fellow in the Manufacturing Business Unit, where her work was focused towards the development of biomaterial interfaces which would have significant impact in the fields of biomedical science and environmental remediation.
Rou Jun joined RMIT in 2020 as a SEAM Postdoctoral Fellow, as part of the School of Engineering, with metal fabrication and corrosion as the central theme of her work. Rou Jun is involved in the project ‘Optimisation of Surface Properties of Additive Components Using an Additive/Subtractive Machine’ in collaboration with the industry partner organisation, Romar Engineering Pty Ltd. Her research experience in the field of materials technology has sparked an interest in advancing the field by solving crucial materials engineering problems, and hence enabling relevant organisations and companies to be more competitive on the global scale. Moreover, with a passion to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers, Rou Jun is actively engaged in community outreach programs.
