Dr. John Holdsworth

My career path is different from the norm in that I have worked in the industry for 12 years before I did a PhD and didn’t have the opportunity to do postdoctoral research. From 1995-2001, I worked in the Philippines as an academic with both teaching and administration (Chair of the Physics Department, Ateneo de Manila University) as primary duties. During this time, in difficult financial circumstances associated with the third world location, I developed a LIDAR system, upon which two Ph.D. and one M.Sc. student were trained and from which many (22) conference papers and posters were generated. Additionally, I collaborated with the Caesar Saloma group at the University of the Philippines resulting in the single journal article from this period. In June 2001, I returned to Australia and accepted the Lecturer (in Photonics) position at the University of Newcastle where I devoted most of my time in the first 3 years coordinating the Photonics program and developing its teaching materials paying particular attention to the laboratory component.
