Personal profile


Paul A. Haynes is a Professor in the School of Natural Sciences at Macquarie University, who specialises in plant and environmental proteomics. His research laboratory has also branched out in recent years to include an active program in bioarchaeological proteomics in collaboration with colleagues in the Department of Ancient History. His research is mainly funded by the Australian Research Council, including a current Discovery Project, a recently completed ARC Training Centre for Molecular Technologies in the Food Industry, where he was the Centre Director, and a newly funded ARC Training Centre in Bioactives. According to his Scopus profile, he has more than 170 publications which have been cited just over 7500 times, for a H-index of 47.

Professor Haynes is the Departmental Director of Higher Degree Research, with overall responsibility for the continued successful progression of 80 to 100 PhD students present in the Department at any given time. He is a tireless advocate for higher degree research students, and his excellence in this area was recognised in 2017 when he received the Macquarie University award for Excellence in Higher Degree Research Student Supervision.

He is a member of the ARC College of Experts, which requires playing a major role in grant assessments and policy development. He is also currently President of the Asia Oceania Agricultural Proteomics Organisation, and in that role is responsible for organising an annual meeting which typically has about 200 to 300 attendees from all over Asia. He is also a member of the Executive Editorial Board of Proteomics, and the editorial boards for Frontiers in Plant Proteomics and International Journal of Molecular Sciences.

Professor Haynes teaches a postgraduate coursework unit in MOLS8212 Proteomics Technologies and Applications in second semester, and co-teaches a third-year undergraduate unit in BMOL3402 Molecular Biology and Genomics in first semester. He also lectures in several other units and is the convener for two more units, MOLS8902 research experience and MOLS8001 Selected Topics in Molecular Sciences.

Paul A. Haynes graduated from Macquarie University with a Ph.D. in chemistry in 1994. After postdoctoral Fellowship positions at the Rockefeller University in New York and the University of Washington in Seattle, he was a principal scientist at the Torrey Mesa Research Institute in San Diego, before taking up a position as an Associate Professor at the University of Arizona in Tucson. He returned to Australia in 2006 to take up a position at Macquarie, and has been a Professor in the Department of Molecular Sciences since 2011.
