Colin Rix

Associate Professor Colin Rix graduated with a BSc from the University of Melbourne, gaining first class honours in chemistry, then completed a PhD in organometallic chemistry in 1971. Colin then traveled to the University of Manchester, England to take up a temporary Lecturing position in Inorganic Chemistry for two years, after which he traveled to the USA and worked on catalytic nickel compounds as a Post-doctoral fellow at Iowa State University, in Ames, Iowa.

He returned to Australia in 1975, and was appointed to a lectureship at RMIT University. He is now an Associate Professor in Inorganic Chemistry, and the Academic Director for the Applied Chemistry Department Programs in Applied Chemistry and Environmental Science.

In 1981 Colin undertook a Professional Experience Program at the Melbourne Laboratories of BHP, and in 1985 had a sabbatical year at Oxford University working with Professor R.J.P. Williams, on aspects of Bio-Inorganic chemistry. The areas of special expertise in which he lectures, researches and publishes, encompass Bio-inorganic chemistry ( the involvement of Inorganic chemistry in life processes ), Inorganic Toxicology ( for which he provides lectures to Masters in Toxicology students ) and Inorganic materials.
