Senior Lecturer in Physics, University of New England

Stephen Bosi has been an academic at the University of New England since 2012, teaching applied physics and astronomy. His current research interests include sustainable technology, computer simulation of material properties and medical physics including plasma-based neutron sources for generating radioactive nuclides for medical imaging.

His scientific career began at UNSW where he completed a BSc with a double major in physics and chemistry (Honours in chemistry) and a PhD in condensed matter physics (crystal growth and properties of superconducting yttrium barium cuprate).

He spent roughly a decade conducting research in optical and electronic phenomena, especially solar energy and sustainable technology at UTS, ANSTO and USyd.

At the Radiation Oncology Dept, Prince of Wales Hospital, Sydney, he conducted four years of medical physics research (including 3‑dimensional measurements of radiation dose and CT scan reconstruction algorithms).

He has also lectured in physics at WSU (Macarthur), University of Wollongong, UTS Broadway and University of Sydney.

He is distracted from his teaching and research duties by educational and public science presentations, including appearances on ABC Radio and TV. He was the joint-lead author of the series of high school physics textbooks, "In2 Physics @ Preliminary" (2009) ISBN 9780733989445 and "In2 Physics @ HSC" (2010) ISBN 9780733991738, Pearson Australia.
