Elizabeth Hinde is a biophysicist with an expertise in fluorescence microscopy who is an ARC Future Fellow in the School of Physics, University of Melbourne (UoM). The overall aim of Elizabeth’s research is to quantify the architectural organisation of the cell nucleus and develop microscopy methods based on fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM) and fluorescence fluctuation spectroscopy (FFS) to measure how chromatin dynamics facilitate navigation of the genome. Elizabeth completed her PhD in fluorescence spectroscopy at UOM in 2010 and then pursued a post-doctoral fellowship in the Laboratory for Fluorescence Dynamics led by Professor Enrico Gratton at University of California, Irvine, USA (2010-2013). In 2013 she returned to Australia as UNSW Vice Chancellor Fellow under mentorship of Professor Katharina Gaus (2013-2016), where she established an independent research program investigating DNA target search strategies in a living cell. This work led to an NHMRC Career Development Fellowship in 2017 and an independent laboratory head position within the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, UOM (2017-2019) that was followed by her current position within the School of Physics, UOM (2019).
