Mr Henry Orton

PhD Student
Bldg 137



Bachelor of Philosophy in Science (Honours)


Originally from New Zealand, Henry completed his Bachelor of Philosophy in Science in 2015 at ANU majoring in chemistry and mathematics. In 2016, he completed Honours with the university medal, investigating paramagnetic relaxation mechanisms in NMR spectroscopy of proteins under Prof. Gottfried Otting. Now having been awarded the ANU Deakin PhD scholarship and Westpac Future Leaders Scholarship, Henry continues with Prof. Gottfried Otting to pursue PhD studies. This project aims to bring solid-state biomolecular NMR spectroscopy with ultra-fast magic angle spinning to Australia for the first time by collaborations with the Centre de Résonance Magnétique Nucleaire in Lyon France. Henry has interests in novel NMR spectroscopy methods, scientific computer programming and science education.
