Professor Smith graduated in Biochemistry from the University of Surrey UK, in 1985 and completed his PhD at Southampton University in 1989.
Professor Smith’s research career has taken him to California as a NATO Fellow to learn molecular modelling, to the University of Copenhagen and the BMC Uppsala to learn Structural Biology. Notable achievements in protein biochemistry and biophysics have included the x-ray structure of classical horseradish peroxidase (HRP) published in Nature Structural Biology, and subsequently the structures of HRP in all five oxidation states, published in Nature.
Professor Smith joined Griffith University in 2016 as the Pro Vice Chancellor (Sciences). He remains a keen educator and positively enjoys teaching molecular enzymology and biochemistry, especially the wonders of bioenergetics.
