Professor Gordon G. Wallace is the director of the Intelligent Polymer Research
Institute (IPRI), one of the University of Wollongong's designated research
strengths. After taking up a lectureship at the University in 1986 Professor Wallace
established the Intelligent Polymer Research Group in 1988, which became the Intelligent
Polymer Research Institute in 1995. He is also involved in the ARC Centre of Excellence -
Electromaterials Science which was set up in January 2006. Additional information
regarding research and teaching interests is to be found here.
