Morphy Dumlao is a Research Fellow at the National Wine and Grapes Industry Centre (NWGIC), Charles Sturt University. He is currently detailed at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) to develop a portable and rapid mass spectrometry device for the detection of phytochemicals and related analytes of wine and grapes.
Morphy worked several years as forensic chemist in the Philippine National Police and UN Directorate for Peacekeeping Operations with field assignments in Sudan (2009) and Timor-Leste (2011). He received a research fellowship from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) with Prof Renato Zenobi at ETH Zurich where his project focused on developing plasma-based ionization mass spectrometry. He pioneered the plasma-based ionization at UNSW which resulted to numerous awards, published high impact factor papers and a cover article.
